After many months of research and endeavour, Heritage Society members completed this much enlarged
display telling the life-story of Fraserburgh-born Charles Rawden MacLean, also known as "John Ross."
Traditional Zulu warrior dress
funded by Fraserburgh Rotary Club.
The Zulu warrior costume is handmade by Thomas Fukude, Induna (Chief) of his clan, from the Nkwaleni Valley
the original homeland of Shaka and the birthplace of the Zulu nation.
Fraserburgh Heritage Society wish to acknowledge the support, advice and contribution received from the
Zululand Historical Museum Eshowe, KwaZulu Natal, Republic of South Africa.
The John Ross story links Fraserburgh and South Africa again.
