hi, I'm researching my great grandfather Robert Hunter Sn 1453 of the 8th bn royal scots killed on 11/03/1915 and remembered at le Touret memorial France. His only possession sent home was a tortoise cowrie sea shell. I have just found a scrap of paper inside it with numbers written on it which are 1,4,6,8,10,15,16,21,22,24,27,31 do these numbers mean anything to the battalion or just a personal thing of my great grandfather any help with where I can start to find out would be most grateful . steve

As part of Musselburgh Riding of the Marches a Grand procession will take place on the morning of Saturday 30th July, assembly point will be within Pinkie House Grounds at 0900 hrs, the parade will step off at 1000 hrs.

The Royal Scots Regimental Association have been invited to have a marching contingent to take part in the Grand Procession, We are hoping to have as many on parade as we did at the Armed Forces Day Parade back in June.

Remembering our Freedom connections with Musselburgh in that The Royal Scots were granted the Freedom of Musselburgh in 1971 and 1 SCOTS accepted the Freedom of East Lothian on behalf of the Royal Regiment of Scotland in 2013

The Parade will finish back at Pinkie House Grounds where various military stands and displays will be on show along with a beer tent where all marching contingent will receive a free beer and snack.
