New Hornshole Memorial planned for Hawick

Just a few days ago we posted Derek Robertson's article about 'The Horse' monument in Hawick.

BBC Scotland reports that a new memorial is planned for Hawick to commemorate the same battle, The Battle of Hornshole in 1514.

Quite why they would spend £100,000 to build a new memorial to the same battle when they already have such and iconic one is beyond me. Perhaps someone from Hawick can enlighten us!
