The funeral of a soldier who died in a suspected hit and run while on holiday in Florida has been held.
Pte Shaun Cole, 22, from Edinburgh, had been attending the Ultra Music festival in Miami with two friends when he died.
It was reported that his body was found on a pavement on 29 March and that he died as a result of a head injury.
He was laid to rest with full military colours at Colinton Parish Church in Edinburgh.

I have just visited your excellent museum at Edinburgh Castle and taken a bus to Penicuik passing the Milton Bridge, Glencourse barracks where my great grandfather served as a Royal Scots quartermaster sergeant in the 1890's. I would like to know more about his service period, where can I look please? I have checked the Scotlandspeople.gov.uk web site but can only find conflicting addresses and details!!! Hope you can be of help. regards Brian George

Is there a search engine I can use to see if my Great Grandad was in The Royal Scots? I have his full name and DOB. Also his Mother and Father's name. I don't really want to contact APC at Glasgow but will,Z if that's my only option. My Father, Uncles and Grandfather were all in The Royal Scots - but I'd like to know where it all started. How can I find out???? Grateful for any answers. Very many thanks!! Sheila Purvis

What a very pleasant afternoon we had at the RS Spring Lunch in the RS Club on Saturday. Well done the Regimental Administrator and the RS Club. If you haven't already been to one of these, book in next year when the time comes. You don't have to be a member of the RS Association to be eligible although we' all hope you'll become one. JB
