Local skipper’s medals on Ebay

Medals belonging to a Fraserburgh man have been found on sale at Ebay, an online auction site.

The circumstances surrounding the Brocher being awarded the medals, according to the seller on the auction site, suggest that Joseph Taylor had saved the life of Alexander Noble while at sea.

It is believed Mr Taylor, however, himself died in 1920 at sea, off the coast of Kinnaird Head at the age of 37.
