On Sunday 16th May a new memorial is to be unveiled in Castle Douglas. The memorial (granite block with plaque) is to Patrick Gifford and is to be unveiled in the grounds of the public library on the 70th anniversary of his death (time of unveiling not known).

Patrick Gifford shot down the first German aircraft of WW2 over British soil.

Today is the 100th anniversary of his birth.

If anyone is thinking of coming, drop me a line so we can meet up.
