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. You always hope that they will go to a good home.
