Watkins Estate Auction Print E-mail

As many of you know, former RSM Capt Ivor Watkins passed away in December 2009 and his wife Margaret passed away in May 2010. All of the Regimental effects and militaria from their Estate has been left to the Black Watch of Canada Foundation. Owing to space limitations at the Armoury, only a portion of these one-of-a-kind items, including dozens of his memorable figurines, can be retained by the Museum and Messes. The balance of the items will be made available to members of the Regimental Family through an online auction hosted at the Regimental website (www.blackwatchcanada.com/watkins). All proceeds from this auction will go to the Black Watch Foundation, a registered Canadian Charity that supports all areas of Regimental life. The auction is set to openĀ  on 18 March and set to end on 17 April. Please be sure to check out the site when it goes online and feel free to contact Cal Kufta at 514-496-1686 ext 232 should you have any questions or should you desire any additional information.
