Bas agus Buaidh - Death and Victory

William Wallace

Scottish patriot born at Elderslie Renfrewshire circa 1270 A.D. who from the year 1296 fought dauntlessy in defence of his country`s liberty and independence in the face of fearful odds and great hardship being eventualy betrayed and captured, brought to London and put to death on the 23rd August 1305.

His example, heroism and devotion, inspired those who came after him to win victory from defeat and his memory remains for all time a source of pride, honour and inspiration to his countrymen.

Dico tibi verum libertas optima rerum nunquam servili sub nexu vivito fili. (Sir William Wallace)

Translation:

I tell you the truth, the best of all things is freedom, never son, live under the bonds of slavery.
