Business.
1. Armed forces day in Edinburgh, Feed back from the Veterans who attended the day have said they believed event had been scaled back and the march to the city chambers was to short and the city chambers could not hold the amount of guests for the speeches from the dignitaries, and that the points would be taken up with Legion Scotland at the next meeting.

2. Breakfast Clubs, awareness was brought up at this meeting due to members attending the Foxy Fiddlers club in Morrison Street which was well attended but as we found out this was due to armed forces day parade, the normal attendance for event is low so the Edinburgh Branch is now looking into using the Ex-service Men’s Club in Leith which is used by other Association and Veterans Groups and with the hope of combining we may establish a permanent breakfast club for the city.

3. Edinburgh Fringe Tattoo dress rehearsals, free tickets are available for legion members only if you want tickets then go to legion Scotland web page you must apply by 21ST July.
