William Mainland               

F.  NK

 

M. NK

 Brother of David Mainland and of Alexander Mainland.

 

William fought at the Battle of Trafalgar and was awarded the Navy Medal with Trafalgar bar in 1848. He lived latterly in North or South Shields. For many years, William's medal was in NZ where presumably it was taken by one of the children of William's nephew, John . In recent times it was returned to George Mainland  who had the tattered ribbon replaced. It is now in the possession of John Mainland, the gg grand-nephew of the man to whom it was awarded.

George Reid came to Rousay as a servant at Westness.  Recently a g-grandson of his daughter Elizabeth showed me a photo of George taken by someone 'from the Sooth' who came to Rousay to interview him when he reached his 100th birthday. At the same time, some doggerel verses were written about him, presumably by the same person. (RCM)
