Meat Loaf and Potato Pie

The greatest warrior hero in Scotland's long history is without doubt Sir William Wallace. For seven hundred years he has inspired generation after generation of Scots including our National Bard, Robert Burns, who put into words thoughts of many of us -

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

One man who is very much inspired by the story of William Wallace is author and historian David R Ross, Convener of the Society of William Wallace. David is well-known for using his motor-bike whilst researching his many books but over the next few weeks his bike will be left at home in East Kilbride as he walks in the footsteps of William Wallace.

David's Walk for Wallace will cover the 450 miles travelled by Sir William Wallace, from his betrayal at Robroyston to the spot of his judicial murder in London on 23 August, 1305.  He sets off on his commemoration walk on Wednesday 3 August 2005 at 8am and intends to walk 20 to 30 miles each day to achieve his deadline of being in London for the 700th anniversary of William Wallace's death on 23 August.  At noon on Tuesday 23 August 2005, he will walk, accompanied by hopefully many fellow Wallace enthusiasts, the six miles from Westminster to the execution site at Smithfield.  A service will be held in St Bartholomew the Great at 3pm.  Visit for full details of David's endeavours. 

The Flag wishes David R Ross its best wishes for the successful conclusion of his imaginative commemoration of the 700th anniversary of the death of our warrior hero William Wallace.  Walking 20 to 30 miles every day should give the 6'5" tall David a very healthy appetite and this week's recipe for Meat Loaf and Potato Pie is just the ticket for anyone in a similar position.
