A CAMPAIGN has been launched in the Oxford area to establish a memorial to a World War One aerodrome and the 14 young airman — one of them from Helensburgh — who died there during the conflict.
THE record-breaking reign of Queen Elizabeth II will be marked with a tree-planting in Luss later this year.
On Wednesday September 9 the Queen will have reigned for 63 years and seven months, making her the longest reigning monarch in British history — overtaking her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria.
