It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death on 22 May 15 of Major Joe Brown formerly 8 RS and 7/9th RS and Chairman of the war time branches of the Association. Joe did so much over the years to keep the war time branches of the association connected. Joe spent many hours typing up news letters which he sent out by e-mail and was solely responsible for posting matters of interest on the forum for the war time branches. He was also extremely good at writing to the families of his colleagues who had passed away. There is to be a private cremation and his ashes will be interred in Peebles. He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. JS

The Edinburgh Armed Forces Day event will take place on Saturday 27th June 2015. Due to the wishes of the Veterans Community in Edinburgh and with the full support of Garrison Headquarters and the City of Edinburgh Council this years event will again be held in the Grassmarket and will include a parade that will provide a high profile presence of the Armed Forces and Veterans community in Edinburgh.

The program of activity in the Grassmarket is still being finalised, the parade forms up in Johnston Terrace between 1100-1130 hrs and will march, stepping off at 1130 hrs, via Candlemakers Row to the area of the Grassmarket. On arrival at the Grassmarket there will be a short address from the Lord Provost and a senior military or veteran figure before the parade dismisses to enjoy the entertainment and military and charity displays.

In order for Legion Scotland to finalise the plans they would appreciate it if we could provide the Likelihood of attendance and an indication of numbers Once the details have been arranged and they have confirmation of your attendance they will be able to provide better clarity on the arrangements for the day i.e. the parade order of march, the details of the entertainment program and confirmed timings for the event.

Can you inform your Branch office Bearers ASAP, if you are attending this years event.

Hi all. I couldnt let this weekend go without saying something on the guestbook. Back shift today and still feeling the effects of the association weekend. LOL. Got to say that its up there as one of the best. I can safely say that all us Royal Scots who turned up to the various events throughout the weekend did the Regiment proud but most importantly, we did our fellow Royals who died 100 years ago at Gretna Green proud. Lest we forget. Until the next gathering which is armed forces day, keep safe. Gives my Liver time to recuperate. Lol. UTR.

The Canadian Scottish was raised as the 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish) Canadian Expeditionary Force in 1914. They fought with distinction on the Western Front where Piper James Richardson won the V C at the Battle of the Somme. During the Second World War they took part in the Normandy Landings and the liberation of France, Belgium and Holland and the final advance into Germany.

In 1926 H M King George V authorised the alliance of The Canadian Scottish and The Royal Scots. The Regiment is based in Victoria, British Columbia, and is a Militia Regiment.

GRETNA WEEKEND Jean and I would like to thank and congratulate all those involved in the planning of the Gretna weekend. It is apparent that to organise four events in three days took a great deal of work and this was appreciated by all those who attended the various events. The Royal Scots once more showed their commitment to remember those soldiers who served and died in the Regiment and this time we paid tribute to those who died in the Gretna train disaster. Well done and Up The Royals!
