    Just came across a comment from Keith Murray on here back in February 2017. Keith, you state you would like to receive a copy of the Thistle magazine, but we have no record of your details. Can you contact the Regimental Office at your earliest convenience, so that this can be addressed? Thank you.

    I’m reminded of the calm words of wisdom from Bill as a young lad in Anti Tank Platoon.
    I thank you and I am sorry to hear of your passing. Quite often we forget how impotprtant the foot print of our fallen comrades leave behind. If it was not for the words of wisdom I may not be the man that I am today. Gone but but never forgotten.

    I regret to announce the death of Ted Komorowski last Wednesday. He died after a short battle with cancer. Ted served in the Regimental Band from 1965 for about six years serving in Tidworth and Osnabrück and he played football for the Battalion. Ted and I started school together and played in several civilian bands and we have been mates ever since. RIP Ted.
