Maxton Met - James Douglas Bell

Last evening, Monday 13th September 2004, a group of 32 attended "Maxton Meets - James Douglas Bell", author of "The Story of Flodden", who gave the illustrated talk "From Boroughmuir to Branxton Moor".
His knowledge of the subject can only be described as encyclopaedic and his enthusiasm boundless. Thanks to him for coming and to all who attended.
James' book, priced 8, is available from MacGregor's Bookshop in Kelso, and all proceeds are going towards a memorial to be erected in Coldstream to the Nuns from Coldstream who helped the wounded and buried the dead after the battle.

We look forward to meeting everyone at the next Maxton Meets on 4th October when Old Galashiels and the surrounding villages will be the subject.
