With great sadness I announce the death of Mr R. B. S. McDonald who passed away peacefully with his daughters by his side at his home in Eastleigh, Hampshire, on Easter Sunday. Veterans of the 7th/9th (Highlanders) Battalion will remember with pride and affection Bob who commanded No. 14 Platoon, C Company, was with us in the attack on the Britannia Hotel, Flushing, later as we crossed into the Reich was wounded in the battle to capture Heinsberg, returning to the Battalion and took part in the Dandy Ninth's capture of Bremen. A fine Royal Scot and a valiant and loyal comrade. Lieutenant McDonald, one of the last three surviving War-time officers of the Battalion, his passing deeply mourned by the Veterans, and we send deepest sympathy to both Bob's Daughters at their most grievous loss.
