The 1981 Test Series was, remembered for Ian Botham resigning the captaincy after the second Test, England having lost the first and drawn the second, Brearley being reappointed, and for the 'famous' third Test match, at Headingley, Ian Botham and Bob Willis's match. England followed on 227 runs behind and were soon 135-7 in their second innings. Botham and Graham Dilley then put together a stand of 117. Botham finished up with 149no and Dilley 56. Australia needed 130 to win. Australia at 56-2 seemed favourites to win the game, however Willis with 8-43 won the game for England by 18 runs. England won the series 3-1.

Willis had match figures of 15.1 overs, three maidens, eight wickets for 43 runs. Seven of his wickets were caught but probably the wicket which stands out to most watchers of the game was when he bowled Ray Bright to win the Test match against all the odds, 500-1 at one point!

East Stirlingshire played regional football until 1900 when the club was elected into the Scottish Football League, taking the place of Linthouse. They have competed in Scotland's top-tier on two occasions in 1932-33 and 1963-64. With reference to the second pocket watch, in 1922-23, the club finished second-bottom in Division Two and was relegated to the newly created, but short lived, Division Three, earning promotion back to Division Two after only one season. It was during this season the East Stirlingshire recorded its longest unbeaten home record with 23 games without a loss. Had they not achieved promotion they would almost certainly have lost their place in the Scottish Football league when this level was abandoned in 1925. The club has suffered financially in the past decade and has regularly finished bottom of the Scottish Football League during this period. East Stirlingshire now play in the Scottish Lowland League.

Both watches are marked 'Star' to inside. According to research there were three grades of case produced by Dennison:-

The 'Star' case has a the layer on the outside of the case 9 carat gold, guaranteed to wear for 10 years. The inside of the 'Star' case, which of course was subject to less wear, was electroplated for further economy'.

Fred McKee was an Irish Association football goalkeeper who played for, among others, Belfast-based clubs Cliftonville, Celtic and Linfield, and the national team of Ireland. He played five matches for Ireland 1906-1914. 'A rather eccentric tea-merchant by day, Fred McKee was famed for his Saville Row suit and the cigarette holder that invariably projected from the side of his mouth. He also took these flamboyant characteristics onto the football field, where he earned the nickname 'Lizzie', his tall, pencil-thin frame clad in long black stockings and topped with a red-white-and-blue hooped jersey!'. McKee transferred to Linfield during the 1914 close-season and went on to claim three Irish Cups during the years of the Great War. Although he was never called on for another full international appearance he did win further amateur recognition after hostilities had ended
