"The story of Wallace poured a Scottish prejudice in my veins which will boil along there till the flood-gates of life shut in eternal rest."

I can remember as a 5 year child being in the back of my dad’s car as we drove past Stirling on a family outing.   My mum pointed out the window and said: "There is the Wallace Monument son".

I don’t know what response she was expecting, but not the one she got I suspect.

As a young Dundonian the only Wallace I knew was the local baker whose fame was earned by his excellent "pehs".    So I answered,

"Eh didnae think his pehs were that guid".

It seemed my parents found my total ignorance of Scottish history highly amusing but thankfully this was sorted by my amazing Irish schoolteacher, Miss Lyons, and by the age of ten I knew all about Wallace and Bruce, Bonnie Dundee, Charles Edward Stuart and Montrose and, although I didn’t know it at the time, I was a nationalist!
