Raymond Eagle

Author Raymond Eagle, FSA. Scot is a Scottish historian with more than fifty published articles on various aspects of Scottish history to his credit. Two other biographies, published in Canada are In the Service of the Crown covering the life of Brigadier the Hon. Henry Bell-Irving DSO and bar, a Canadian war hero who led the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada from central Italy to Holland in WWII. He was also British Columbia's 23rd Lieut. Governor; and Don't Tell My Mother - Or How to Fight Wars On Your Own Terms co-authored with the late Peter Duggan-Smith, DFC whose incredible 'seat of the pants' long and adventurous flying career is described in this humourous book. Though born in Eastleigh, Hampshire in 1931 the author was drawn to Scotland at a very early age and began visiting there immediately following the end of WWII when travel restrictions to the Highlands were lifted. He has returned regularly ever since, for the past 45 years from Vancouver, Canada. He first met Seton Gordon on Skye in July 1949 and found him to be very approachable and generous with his time. He had just returned from observing a Golden Eagle eyrie that he studied regularly for a full eight years and he described in some detail that day's observations. Through the Simon Fraser University's Centre for Scottish Studies and the University Pipe Band's Highland Arts Festivals, Raymond Eagle has been a guest lecturer on Scottish history both on campus and at universities in Chicago, Illinois and Montcalm, New Jersey.
