Piper Daniel Laidlaw V.C

Piper Laidlaw won the V.C. at Loos (World War I) on 25th September 1915: 'During the worst of the bombardment, seeing that his company was somewhat shaken from the effects of gas, he mounted the parapet, and played his company out of the trench. The effect was immediate, and the company dashed out to the assault. Piper Laidlaw continued playing until her was wounded'.

Stagshaw Bank Fair - Corbridge, Northumberland

Michael Jones reading the rules of the Stagshaw Bank Fair at the Market Cross, Corbridge on Tyne, Northumberland. The Fair, traditionally held on 4th July, was one of the most famous of the country fairs. It included a huge sale of stock, and was proclaimed each year by the bailiff to the Duke of Northumberland. Today the Northumberland County Show, an agricultural event, is held in the fields outside Corbridge each year, a very popular rural event, drawing people from all over Northumberland as well as further afield. It is interesting the card (from 1904) has been annotated (by the sender) with the specific names of the participants and even the pub! The reverse message bemoans the dwindling numbers attending the fair noting "the marts is spoiling the fairs" ! Date: 1904
