Respect the monument

I have just read Jean Muir’s letter, ‘Battle to tidy up Hornshole’ in the Hawick News of July 10, and heartily agree with her comments.

I am the granddaughter of the sculptor of the original monument, Robert Robson, and my family and I do not agree with other objects on the site. This is a memorial to the Callants who fought and died there and ought to be respected as such.
