Warning order. Royal Scots Veterans Gathering. Saturday 7th of May 2016. 25th Anniversary ( OP GRANBY ). This is open to all Royal Scots regardless of if you served in Gulf War 1 or not. This is a Commemoration / Celebration of our great Regiments last battle honour.

I posted on social media less than 48 hours ago and we have 27 going and 44 maybe's Aye, Maybe's Naw. This is an informal event so get round your old comrades from your old platoons/companies from those days and get persuading them to come along, ANTI/TANK boys take note.

This has the potential to be another big turn out, last month we had 76 Royals on parade for what was a fantastic occasion. Can I just point out, this is not to be confused with the Op Granby dinner being held in the Royal Scots club at the end of February or, the Royal Scots Annual reunion being held at the BMC club the week before this gathering. This is for all us guys who for various reasons won't make either or if you're lucky enough to attend all then well done. This is an alternative.

We as a Regimental association, have for the past two years now have been Commemorating events that happened 100 years ago and have been honouring the brave men and woman of WW1 and quite rightly, so next year is our turn.

We the majority are alive and kicking and extremely proud that 25 years ago we earned our Regiments last battle honour and should be celebrated by all Royal Scots who wish to do so. More info will be available after the year. Let's get Santa out the road first, and get the date in your diaries and spread the word. UTR.

Col Blythe, Things are good here in Scottsdale. It was good to see the photo of Rab and Mrs Johnstone at Sgt McFarlane's grave in Philadelphia. I am still searching for other Royals buried in the USA, they must never be forgotten. Even though Philadelphia is 2000 miles, I have a good network to get crosses/poppies placed on graves. Attended the Remembrance Sunday event in Mesa, Arizona where I had the honour of carrying the Union Flag again. I think it is because I am a Royal Scot and that alone lifts the standard. I will be at Palace Barracks in March.

Hi. Just been in visiting Bert Rutherford. He's looking, and feeling, very tired due to various medication but can still have a conversation. I'm fortunate enough to be working at the University part of the Hospital this weekend and will pop back in tomorrow to see him again. He sends his best to all Royals and his last words as I was walking away was UP THE ROYALS . Get well soon Bert.
