If you wish to purchase a Thistle for your personal use, Sean is offering copies for sale directly from his Smiddy at Cousland. Note the copies will not have a mounting bracket option or space for engraving a name.
Sean can be contacted through his Facebook page by searching for ‘Sean Cockburn Blacksmith’.
The photo shows the prototype Thistle in place on the Ferguson monument’s fence. The final ones will have slightly smoother top edges and space for engraving the soldier’s name (subject to testing due to hand made nature of Thistle).
