Was in to visit Bobby Buckhannon and drop off a card from the East of Scotland Branch Members while I was at work at Bonnyrigg Community Hospital, Bobby was not looking that great and very tiered went for a sleep while I was visiting. His partner says he has been talking a lot about the Regiment, and about members of the Regiment. Anyone in or around Bonnyrigg with some time on your hand pop in for a visit, he would enjoin the company.

The Battle of the Somme Centenary Service
A service in commemoration of the centenary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme where many fine Regiments, Battalions and Units lost so many men will take place in St Cuthberts Church. The loss included that of the 16th Battalion The Royal Scots, the 2nd Edinburgh Battalion, named after their charismatic and much-loved colonel, Sir George McCrae; almost three-quarters of their strength was either killed, wounded or reported missing.
Friday 1st July at 12.30pm (Entry via Kings Stables Road or Lothian Rd)
All are welcome to this community event, led by Army Chaplains and which will include a screened segment from the earlier Service held in Contalmaison, France. The singing will be led by the Edinburgh Military Wives Choir.
Organised by McCraes Battalion Trust and OASIS (an outreach of St Cuthberts Church) and in partnership with business matters and Work Place Chaplaincy Scotland. Refreshments will be served after the service.
