What I learned today

What I learned today

Postby drmoss_ca » Fri Nov 18, 2016 2:21 pm

Old firearms are a passion of mine (although modern politics about firearms ain't so welcome here). Today I learned that Henry Nock, a well-respected London gunmaker who died in 1804, left his business to his son-in-law, whose name was Wilkinson. The very same Wilkinson whose business eventually became Wilkinson Sword! Three degrees of separation between many shaves I have enjoyed and Henry Nock!

Anyone else learn something interesting today?

That Fidel Castro was an honourary pallbearer at Pierre Trudeau's funeral in 2000.
