My father passed away on Saturday 25th April 2015. I am having difficulty finding his Army service number. All I am able to go on in finding this number is that he served in the Royal Scots Greys on the timescale of 1956 - 1965 and that he served in Germany & Aden. My fathers name was Alexander Mcintosh and D.O.B 30/11/1939. The only other thing I know about his time in the Army was that he was convicted of crime at District Court Martial Catterick Camp and sent to Aldershot Prison. If there is anyone out there that can help or even knew my father please please get in touch. My Email address is Thank you.

From Jim Anderson, Lynsay I have sent you an email with information.

I would like to thank everyone who attended Saturday Royal Scots Association Annual Reunion at the BMC Club, once again this was another sell out night. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members who came along to help set up the hall, to the ladies who went round selling the Raffles, also a big thank you to the Royal Scots Association Pipe Band and the Group TIMELESS for their outstanding performances throughout the night and finally to the Staff at the BMC Club for keeping us well watered through the night. It was great to see so many well known faces and some new ones as well, once again a great night of entertainment and banter was had by all. And look forward to seeing you all next year. Up the Royals.

Hi. Was at Gallipoli two weeks ago and would recommend you put it on your wish list of places to visit. Met a good few Australians and New Zealanders on the coach from Istanbul ( As you'd expect ) along with a German and French couple. I had to obviously mention I was a former Royal Scot and proceeded to explain about the 7th Bn on route there only to be killed at Gretna. It certainly got their attention and a few goggling it when they got back to Istanbul. Another good job done by yours truly. LOL UTR.

The Gallipoli Campaign which resulted in over 200,000 allied casualties, saw an allied naval and military operation attempt to force the Dardanelles in order to secure entry to the Black Sea as well as Turkey's capital.

On Saturday 25th April Legion Scotland will be hosting a commemorative event at Edinburgh Castle marking the 100th anniversary of the commencement of the First World War's Gallipoli Campaign, honouring the sacrifices of Scotland's men and women.

Thank you for allowing me to use your guest book to ask a question that you experts may be able to solve. Have you a record of Scottish men killed during the Crimean War? My great great grandfather Charles Dunn was born in 1815 Falkirk. He married and lived in Old Kilpatrick but I cant find a death record for him. It could be he was in the Military and died abroad. His sons were in the Military and in a newspaper cutting after one son died in ww1 it said he was from a Military family. Was he in the 1st battalion of the Royal Scots? Thank you for reading this, Norman Dunn
