Seeing as today is the Culloden commemoration I though I would post this.....

Excellent pamphlet that was written by Oliver Brown during World War 2 in 1942, and highlights many wrongs that England has done against our people the Scots.

Want to know more about what was happening in Scotland post union 1707 then this article shall help to fill in some of the gaps to what was happening to the Highland people and the abuse they suffered.


If you can find any old pamphlets by the Scots Secretariat they are well worth a read.

It's sort of a bugbare of mine folk latching onto the Jacobite Rebellion as some sort of Nation of Scotland Vs the Nation of England conflict when it was anything but. If they are going to use it as some sort of point to prove etc, then they should get their facts right.

Lets me get this this.Republicans support absolute monarchy vs monarchy which was a wee bit more answerable to parliment, however flawed?

Excellent post, thank you.
The barbarian terrorism inflicted upon Scots who preferred their own cultural ways to foreign impositions should be on every Scottish classroom wall.

Everybody is entitled to their opinion, the purpose of articles is to create debate be it politics, football etc I have had alot of great comments on various forums for posting this. For a individual to publish this during WW2 speaks volumes.

Oliver Brown was not affraid to speak out on issues, search for some of his works. Although an SNP member all his life, he also called himself a Republican Socialist and always advocated for an Independent Scotland.

Feel free to leave a comment in rememberence at the link below

Also, the James Wilson article to which you linked in your other thread still states that he was 'quartered' which you accepted was untrue. When are you going to amend it?

good shout on changing the article if you believed it to have an inaccuracy in it. 6 posts in and you've graciously admitted you're wrong and done a correction, no wonder you're thought of as a nutter in certain quarters :ok:

its a bugbear of mine - people saying that there were not a significant number of Scots on the Jacobite side who joined up for the primary reason that they had a vague promise the Union would be ended. Many who fought on the Jacobite appear to have had this motivation. Although the primary purpose of the rebellion was something different, to take the 'nationalist' element away completely (which is my bugbear) is just as wrong as saying it was a scot v eng battle (and the correct term would be scot v brit anyway).

are you saying none had that motivation when they put their lives on the line ?
