1950 : with no motorways or cars that even had heaters and a few students from Glasgow University who set out to demonstrate that Scotland could still "be a nation again" on Christmas Eve 1950. Driving south to London in a severe blizzard - this was no "student prank" as so often portrayed - but a carefully considered and deliberate political statement. To recover the stone upon which Scottish Kings had been crowned from beneath the English throne in Westminster Abbey and return it to Scotland.

The actual undertaking had something of a Keystone Cop flavor to it - none the less they succeeded and galvanised the Scottish Nation - none of whom gave the perpetrators up - when the police came hunting - though not too hard.

Ian Hamilton's self depreciating style and his deep respect for all human beings shines through the text.
