Full Product Description

The proud surname of ‘Wright’ originally denoted someone who ‘works’ – and it is through ‘working’ in a colourful and diverse range of pursuits that bearers of the name have achieved international fame.
Allied to an ancient Scottish clan, they were at the forefront of some of the nation’s most bitter conflicts, while in later centuries others of the name gained distinction on the battlefield.
As a sept, or sub-branch, of Clan Macintyre, the Wrights shared in both its glorious fortunes and tragic misfortunes – most notable of the latter being the ill-fated Jacobite Rising of 1745 when, in April of the following year, a branch of the clan known as the Macintyres of Badenoch were among the many slain at the battle of Culloden.
Bearers of the Wright name have gained distinction in much later conflicts, with no less than three being awarded the Victoria Cross (VC), the highest award for bravery in the face of enemy action for British and Commonwealth forces.
The inspiring tale of the Wrights is chronicled here.
