Time to get a campaign going to get this letter back in Scotland for all to see rather than it locked away in a drawer at the National Archives, Kew !

I would urge everyone to get writing to those below, spread the word around to as many Forums as you can.

Background to the letter-:

Safe Conduct Letter from the King of France Philip IV (reference number SC 1/30 m.81 ) carried by Sir William Wallace on his capture at Robroyston, 3rd August 1305. It is patently wrong that such a valuable artefact is held in a drawer in London, when the person to whom it relates is Scottish. The letter itself was seized with Sir William and was thuis stolen from Scotland in the first place. It must be returned to Scotland for display in the National Museum in Edinburgh, so that all Scots (and visitors to Scotland) have full rights of access to view this historic document.

Online Petition -: http://www.petitiononline.com/wfw1/petition.html

Who to contact -:

Your own MP, MSP,

Linda Fabiani MSP Minister for Culture. E-mail Linda.Fabiani.msp@scottish.parliament.uk

Address -: Linda Fabiani MSP
The Scottish Parliament
Edinburgh
EH99 1SP

Des Browne Secretary of State for Scotland
E-mail browned@parliament.uk

Thanks for the replies, but remember the most important bit is contacting our elected politicians. They will have to answer your query.
The online petition may only help in the long run and will be important then. But the first step is to get writing letters and e-mails.


If you want this letter back in Scotland then you have to help get it back.

Signed and emailed my MP. Unfortunately it's the geriatric Menzies Campbell so I wouldn't hold out much hope on him working out how to use email! :lol:
