The Watson-Watt Society of Brechin aims to encourage the public to have a better understanding of the pioneering work of Sir Robert Watson-Watt, who was born in Brechin in 1892 and educated at Damacre Primary School and Brechin High School. The team of physicists he led played a crucial role in the defence of the United Kingdom during World War II. Visit our website for further details : http://www.watsonwatt.org The Society intends to create a permanent memorial in Brechin to this man and his achievements which helped win the Battle of Britain. Artists and craftsmen have been invited to submit designs and tender for the work and the committee is currently evaluating the design proposals. Everyone hopes that science and aviation enthusiasts will visit this ancient and interesting city of Brechin to view the memorial, which will be raised by public subscription and is planned to be unveiled in April 2012.
