THE R W Thomson Memorial Fellowship have launched a new Facebook page celebrating Stonehaven’s famous inventor of the pneumatic tyre, who was born in 1822.
The page which was created on January 25, will undoubtedly highlight all of Thomson’s achievements. But today, on the 70th Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen, it is a little-known royal connection to Thomson that is revealed. It’s a wee jewel of a story.
Would you like to know what that connection is? Visit the R W Thomson Memorial Fellowship page on Facebook to find out!
