Lol..., thank you for the compliment and your great ideas.
In fact, we will probably be dealing with them next year. But to do so needs additional licenses and the MoD are making them hard to come by ! We'd also have legal competition (Breitling, Citizen etc.) ..., which is not the case with the Army.

Have a nice day..., Iain.

Just had our first TV publicity.
MacArthur..., my Campbeltown family would be proud.

From shoesmith: (McArthur/MacFarlane Tiree origin - High Street) Fishermen: (McArthur-Black and Irsih) Butchers: (McArthur Longrow) to Baker: (Macarthur Longrow) Then to watchmaker. (MacArthur Belgium)
Lol..., a 200-year long haul !

And it's not finished... I have a first of three volumes due out for December. Ambition, to recover 18 Scots Guards Waterloo Medals, confiscated by a dishonest Lt. Col. Macdonnell. I have all the proof !
