MESSAGE FOR DI ANDERSON. I remember you well Di from the Glencorse days. My email address is: Would be nice to catch up. I am also on FB: Bill Sutherland Ref Historical Enquiries...... see Museum section on this page...... you will have to get in touch with them, As far as I am aware, they are inundated with requests at the moment and unable to cope... so there will be some delay in responding to you I am sure. Good luck with your research. Look forward to hearing from you. Bill Sutherland

For Bill Sutherland. Hopefully you will remember me from Glencorse Barracks 1987-1990. I was the Budget Manager, maiden name Wilson. I came on to this website because I am involved in a volunteering project researching WW1 soldiers (including 4 Royal Scots and 4 Royal Scots Fusiliers) who died at the Military Hospital in Catterick. It is coincidental that almost the first thing I saw was your name and your retirement! Would the regiment be able to provide any info about these soldiers and/or would they be interested in receiving any information once the project is finished? Hope you don't mind me asking. I wish you all the best for your retirement.

Veterans of the 7th/9th (Highlanders) Battalion rejoice with Sergeant Jack Hall at the news of the Award of the Military Cross to his Grandson in todays Honours and Awards for Operations in Afghanistan.

Captain William Andrew Hall, 16th Royal Regiment of Artillery, crawled through intense Taliban fire to try and save a comrade. Crawling 20 metres along the top of a ditch to the fallen soldier, he gave emergency aid in full view of the enemy before pulling the wounded soldier into cover. He then turned his attention to the enemy guns and despite the reflection on his binocular lenses causing insurgent fire to be refocused on him for a third time, Captain Hall undeterred continued to call for fire until ordered to withdraw.

Veterans proudly recall Jacks own exemplary courage, when only 18, the Buffalo in which he was advancing to Middelburg was blown-up by a mine when investigating an enemy pillbox. Six men were tragically killed. Jack suffered during the explosion which threw him into the deep flood water. Re-surfacing, he immediately began diving to assist in the rescue of his comrades.

We share in the pride of Sergeant Jack Hall in the award of the Military Cross to his Grandson and warmly congratulate Captain William Andrew Hall, M.C., 16th Royal Regiment of Artillery.

For the attention of Major Joe Brown and others of 7/9 RS. The wider RS Association will likewise be saddened at the passing of Robert Tilly. In more recent years, he was a regular attender at our Spring Lunches and Autumn Dinners in the RS Club. Lt Col Jim Blythe.
