Footnotes

  • The Highland and Agricultural Society (now Royal) was founded in 1784 to promote the development of agriculture in Scotland generally and the Highlanders in particular. General Abercromby (born at Tullibody in 1734) commanded the British Expedition to Egypt, and the handling at Aboukir Bay on 2 March 1801 in the face of strenuous French opposition, is justly regarded as one the most brilliant and daring exploits of all time. The French made a surprise attack on the British camp on the night of 21 March and Abercromby was struck by a ricochet, he died aboard the flagship seven days later. Medals in gold were presented to the Prince Regent and Abercromby's sons, but silver and bronze medals were later struck and awarded to senior officers of the expedition as well as soldiers who had distinguished themselves in the campaign.
