1741 Brown Bess musket. Originally a 42" New Land. Believed to have been used at a Jacobit battle and dropped there. Picked up by a Mackay and cut down and used for poaching deer. It was still in use in the 1970s when Rob bought it.

This one belonged to Rob's wife, Lillias, it was made for a ladie's hand. Circa 1750, it is believed to have been made in Belgium or France. No proof marks. All metal.

Back of a flint lock. No other info.


A Jacobite pistol. I.S on the lock plate. Posibly made by John Stewart?

There is more info on some of the images, but in all the years I knew Rob I had great difficulty in reading his writing. Rob was a doctor, & blamed the poor writing on the speed at which he had to write when at university. Rob did not like typing, but when he was not tired I could read his writing, but it progressively got worse.
I think these are all the images of Dr Gilbert's collection that I have. I hope they are of some interest.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. Henry David Thoreau.
