Hi all. Great to see the Edinburgh branch organising another event which happens to be on the same day as the Royal scots veterans gathering. This is in my opinion a good thing as it gives us a choice and a variety of options. We have over 35 now coming to the gathering with a further 15 maybe coming and we have been invited for a few beers down at the ex serviceman's club before their Christmas do. We won't be paying the 15 pounds though. As most of you know, and it has been well publicised on social media and here that the Royal Scots veterans gathering was organised away at the beginning of the year so if you'd like to join us for a couple down Leith before heading up town to meet the rest of the boys/girls then feel free to join us. UTR.

James Brendan Doherty (Seamus) I am trying to locate my uncle Seamus who was in the Royal Scots from 1963 - 69. From the limited information I have gathered he did at least one tour of Aden, possibly two. He was demobbed in England in 1969. With family moving house and others passing away, we have lost touch with him. Can anyone please help me find him? Contact me directly on 07 989 989 969. Many thanks for taking the time to read this. Catherine Coutts (nee Doherty)
