sir – The 18k gold full hunter Hahn Landeron pocket watch presented to my grandfathe­r on his retirement from the Seaforth Highlander­s is far too heavy for anyone’s pocket (Letters, September 13).

It sits on its domed glass-covered stand, accurately ticking through the centuries since it was manufactur­ed in the 1890s – a fine tribute to the watchmaker’s art and the fine old soldier who was its first owner. James Mcnie

sir – Only this week my wife and our daughter made use of the wooden surfboard, complete with a knot, that was made for my mother-in-law, now 99, when she was 14.

She herself only stopped using it a small number of years ago.
