“…the concept took root from the family story of my grandfather, and Andrew and Brian’s great grandfather, being awarded a pocket watch in WW1, by a German officer’s family who he helped rescue. This was true but the watch went to another Paddy King in the 6th Connaught Rangers after being received at the Regimental HQ. My dad always pondered how we may ever find this watch and from this, in his memory and his father’s memory, the idea took shape.”… Buy it, Bid for it…Even be Gifted it!
