    Picture David Stirling, founder of the SAS, memorial....big pictures!

    Just outside Doune, Stirlingshire, can be found the memorial to Col David Stirling, the founder of the SAS during World War 2.

    It's a bit off the beaten track, and is the kind of "blink and you'll miss it" type of memorial that is very often forgotten, or unknown.

    So much so that I was the only person there on my visit, so had plenty of time to get some good shots (took 75!), and before I left the sky turned nice and moody which went well with the tarnished bronze statue.

    Here are a few pics....

    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.....

    Excellent. Even as a statue, the SAS are still hard to find.

    Very true.

    I had the pleasure of working with a member during a training course once (pleasure or pain, not quite sure! ) Ran us ragged for about 8 miles through rough terrain ..... and he hardly broke sweat!

    I was breathing out my backside, just like the rest of my mates! :oops:
