F.A.O Andy Bennie. Sorry Andy but I've done it again. Not paying attention to detail. I see it's October and not this month. With that said I'm away on the commemoration tour of France and Belgium on the 16th and wouldn't think my wife would agree to having a stranger there if I'm not. I'm sure you'll understand. Can anyone help Andy out?

Served 1954 to 1957 and proud to say I'm an ex-Royal Scot. I have many memories,both happy and also some sad. The Lads I served with were great, and I always wonder how things turned out for them. I myself ended up in Canada. I was in the MT PLATOON. Sorry this is so brief, but it gives you an idea of my 3 1/2 years with the Regiment. I'm sure we all have a lot more to tell.

Alan would have had no problem getting wee bevy in The Ram as wee lassie behind the bar was not even born in 1974, and Doc Halliday (Piper) and I got served as we also had been barred Happy days. A lovely service at Tidworth Military Cemetery, Padra Cathcartt (Rev) who took service when Chalky was laid to rest there, also took service on the day, and members of Chalky family were present,very moving, along with few of us old Royal Scots, who also attended Jimmy Murray, and old Jock Davidson graves also the children's Lorraine Anne Reid, Andrew Robert Morrison Suzanne Marie Stevenson, gone but never forgotten. Hope you have received info. from Christopher regarding November Events, as he has e-mailed it out, so look forward to seeing you. Tam Douglas has 26 coming down from Scotland to join us, so good turnout for march past the Cenotaph.

At the moment there are 28 Going and 18 mibbes aye mibbes naw. Going to be a good one either way troops so keep spreading the word. UTR.
