Seeking Information


From Stan Bruce we have...

There is a monument sited about 1 mile upstream of the river Don from Dyce, Aberdeen and I believe it's called the 'Liddell Monument', however I've no information on it and wondered if you could put out a request in the next newsletter to see if anyone out there knows anything about it.

I've attached a photograph which was taken from the south side of the railway line - I couldn't get any closer.

Should you have any information on this monument please email Stanley Bruce and if you can copy me into it would appreciate it :-)

We now have some information...

From Bonnie Brezette we have...

I have a Spoon that no one can identify. My GGGG grand Mother (she was a Mitchell) sent it to the U.S. around 1800. It is an amazing piece of work. That I know of it has been in my family for 400 years. I have taken it to 2 Universities, they were mystified and have tried to get some one from many museums to reply but it must just get lost on someones desk top.  

I took it to the Scottish Festivel here in Saltlake City and everyone that viewed it was awstruck. The language in it appears to be old gaelic latin?, and 3 other languages, which are thought to be extinct. It appears to have been made in the medieval times. It is 7.5 inches in length, silver and very ornate.  

Writing on the spoon appears to be SUP HEPT BRENNETIHR CKE.

Should you be able to help with identifying this sppon please email Bonnie and if you can copy me into it would appreciate it :-)
