just finished the book and i was very impressed! i take my hat off to your courage sir! this book should be given out free all over scotland a couple of months before any referendum! i hope the movie catches the imagination of the don’t knows? i plan to buy another copy and just leave it on a bus, with a message inside saying “this is a gift of your history,when your finished put it back where you found it, too inspire the next person pass it on” mr hamilton, sir,your place in history is secure, the rest of us can only learn and then educate from your example!
I have heard about your story about the stone of destiny from my parents… and am looking forward to going to see the movie!
i was just wondering if you remembered my parents!? Mary and Ricky Fleming! I think you used to fly a plane in the late 70’s early 80’s when they did skydiving in Strathallan!
The movie sounds great! and cant wait!!
After all these years I do remember them. They always came together carrying their rigs together in what looked like a carry-cot. They were once very indignant whn I asked if that might be a carry cot at last.
I loved these days as a jump pilot at Strthhallan. Should yu come to the Oban show please introduce yourselto me. Please give tham my regards.
I saw the film tonight in the GUU debates chamber. I thought it was brilliant - the sort of film I’ve always loved, and don’t see enough of. I think also that the atmosphere helped - it ended to clapping and stomping and much singing.
I fully intend to read your book when I get a free moment (as a law student I’m amazed you had time to plan a major theft!)
I saw the film in an advance showing at Infinity Entertainment last night, in Vancouver.
Being by lineage half-Scots (Livingstone Station) and half-English (Lancs) I have mixed feeling about the film’s politics, but none about its passion.
It caught the spirit and energy of youth, the imagination and hopes of a people, and in its cinematography the beauty of (half) my ‘native’ land. This is no small compliment, as it come from a Canadian!
I predict, and hope for, a wonderful success. Congratulations, all.
My second cousin is Jim Halliday and it has always been a family tradition that he was in some way involved in your grand adventure, allthough I never discussed the subject with him when we met, the idea he might have had something do with it inspired me to get involved in the cause. My mother tells me that Olive and Jim are both fine.
Just watched the movie and what a story. Your group of friends back then had the same fire in you as our group today. We are proud to have you on our groups Roll of honour.Lets hope your book and the movie can light a fire in the hearts of a new generation of Scots. Saor Alba.
I haven’t yet seen this film but, as I’ve read the book and seen the first film I’ve no doubt I will watch it at some point. As a matter of interest. The book nor the first film do not mention anything about local Arbroathians actually helping with the transport and placement of the stone in Arbroath Abbey. Is it true that two local men actually rendered assistance at this stage? Do you, for instance remember a garage owner and a butcher who you met at meetings in Arbroath before the taking of the stone?
I have just caught up to Charlie’s film and your story (and this website)…
Charlie was certainly the right person for the job as were you !
In the day (50’s) when so many people were coming out of cookie cutters and settling for the little home and peace and quiet after those terrible 40″s you and your merry little band struck a blow for historic “corrections”…you were a rightous rebel then and I see by some of your blogs you haven’t changed
Right On !!!
I just stumbled upon the film “Stone of Destiny” and was happy to learn more about this thrilling story, of which I had only the faintest of knowledge. Mr. Hamilton is a credit to his countrymen, and despite his protestations to the contrary, he is deserving of his well earned place in history. I commend you sir. Few in this world, at present or in the past, have the courage to follow through with what they know to be right in the face of perilous opposition. Congratulations on the audacity of your youth.
