In Edinburgh

Von Bergmann spent time in the Royal Mile today. He wandered from stall to shop and eventually entered an extremely small shop stocking antiquarian books. Having greeted his customer ,the shopkeeper left the Tradgardlander to his own devices.
There, at the back of the shop, Von Bergmann found a medieval tome with the dust of centuries upon it. His eyes alighted upon the illustration opposite - swords being sharpened prior to battle. He recalled all those, who like him, prepared to battle for the true King of Scotland. Their blades would undergo such a ritual soon.
He closed the book and left the shop, burdened with the thought of the battle ahead...
