Conservationists repairing a flagpole at the Bannockburn memorial in Stirlingshire have found a time capsule from more than 75 years ago.

Workers uncovered a newspaper, coins and fragments of glass sealed inside the historic monument in 1937.

The 1870s flagstaff is being repaired in time for the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn next year.

One for the Scots amongst us......

Two members of the Clan Campbell were on their way home after a Christmas Eve drink in the pub. One said to the other, "Jings, I could murder a MacDonalds!"

Gosh darn it! I guess I didn't bury the body there either! *snaps fingers*

Where oh where, could it be?

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Yeah the joke kinda falls flat without the likes of Eldorado to throw in a pithy response. LOL
