Up next...

In the highly unlikely event that things have gone according to plan, I should be off on my travels by now. When I get back, I hope to write a post about Arthur Donaldson's brief internment without trial during the Second World War. With the very kind help of Marcia and her friend Tom, I've been looking through the relevant material from the National Archives. You probably won't faint with amazement to learn that the totality of the picture is rather different from the one you may have seen portrayed in certain anti-independence publications a few years back. The "evidence" against Donaldson was almost laughably thin, and many of the documents themselves openly concede that.

In the meantime, don't rush off, because - thrillingly - I may just have the odd prescheduled post for you during my absence.
