    A life well worthy of all our admiration and infinite respect.

    The BBC report included this:
    Jane Haining was gassed to death after being detained by the Gestapo, accused of political activity, helping Jews and of listening to the BBC.


    The gas chambers that the revisionists would have us believe never existed.

    Lest we forget.

    The National Wallace Monument has a Hall of Heroes which contains busts of prominent Scottish men. For the first time a woman will be included. There is a shortlist of 14 and people are invited to vote on their preference. I have chosen Jane Gaining as she paid the ultimate price in protecting others. A true heroine. Please go to National Wallace Monument website and vote for her.

    Thanks Owen for including the link. I had a sudden crisis and had to dash. (Tatties boiling over).
