Jim, as others have said in this guestbook, re-reading Willies story just confirms the sheer quiet heroism of the man.It is an inspiration and a privilege to have met Willie. Keep up the good work Peter

Jim Most of it has been said but what an experience you must have felt standing in that foreign place very moving. To be perfectly honest it is a great leveller we are all busy trying to strive for things but perhaps we should all take some time out and take stock. This web site once again is faultless.

Jim Thanks for telling me about the update to this website. It is such a fascinating and humbling story that I don't mind reading it again even though I have heard you tell it many times. It must have been a memorable experience for you to discover the location. A superb site that brings history to life and ensures that we do not forget. All best wishes Dick

In september 2000 my good lady and I had the honour of standing at the grave side of the brave man. That started Duncan Brown on his crusade to make all the VC`S of lanarkshire houshold names

Outstanding site. As an historian of WWI in particular its great to see that those who have shown incredible bravery and valour continue to be recognised. Your background information on the medal was most interesting and enlightening. I'm amazed that so many VC's come from the same region.....Lanarkshire should be proud ........Scotland should be proud. Good luck with a major memorial to the VC's. Mike Silver

Brilliant site! Did not realiseso many VC's came from one area. Hope Gorrie can persuade the politically correct Scots parliment to spend money on remembering those we ought to honour!

I find it a humbling experiance to read about such heroism. I originally come from Airdrieand we were never taught enything about these hero`s. I also know that many scots died fighting under the flags and uniforms of other coutriesincluding Vietnamwhere I believe 39 scots died wearing Australian uniforms Thanks Jim Arch grant.

I have just discovered that there are three VC's recipients in Carluke alone and another three within the old parish district. This must be uniquie whatever way you look at it. The moral is:- Dont fight with Carluke men!

Congratulations on your website - an excellent way of keeping the memory of these men alive and spreading the word about an important piece of history. I am trying to persuade the Scottish Executive to put up some money for the monument to back up their words of support.

Words can not express what one feels when reading about the bravery that these men exhibited to achieve freedom for their country and the world. It was especially meaningfull having recently visited Scotland where I had the opportunity to visit the new Scottish War Museum in Edinburgh Castle and view the Victoria Cross receipient display. Once again congratulations Jim...you've truly honored your family with this display...your friend..jerry Miami-Dade Police Department Miami Florida

Hello Jim - Well done on an excellent site. I have visited a few times now and am genuinely interested in what you are doing. It would be good to find out a bit more about the plans for a monument and what action is being taken on it. Have you considered trying to get the paintings published on the web? It may drum up some support from people who would want to see them 'in the flesh'. If Monklands.com can help in any way please let us know. All the best Kevin.
