Wales & McCulloch

I came across this clock key for sale on eBay apparently for a clock manufactured by "Wales & McCulloch". They seemed to be a London-based firm with a shop at 20 Ludgate Hill. I haven't yet managed to track down who this McCulloch was or where he came from so it's still an unsolved mystery! Any further information about Wales & McCulloch would be gratefully received.

Pvt Charles Lawson McCulloch

A number of items belonging to a Pvt Charles Lawson McCulloch have appeared at auction this week in Glasgow, Scotland. It is always very poignant to me when this happens - the personal belongings of someone appearing in a public auction, not knowing where they came from and equally where they will end up.
