An envelope containing a postal Order has been received in The Regimental Office. As there was no note with it we are unable to identify who it is from or what it is for. The envelope was posted in Glasgow on 15 March and is correctly addressed. If you sent a postal order to us please call the office on 0131 557 0405. Jimmy Springthorpe

F.A.O Scott Liam Buist. Hi Scott. I Remember your uncle Scott ( BUISTY ) very well. I, along with many Royal Scots reading this will remember him as well with great fondness. He was a great guy and I can't believe it's been 19 years already. Give your family our sincere condolences. Like you say, it probably only seems like yesterday to your family. We, The Royal Scots association, always have a minutes silence at all our monthly meetings, and, other occasions we happen to meet in honour of all royal Scots who are no longer with us, and of which, your uncle Scott is one of those old soldiers. Sometimes, as the years pass , we need reminding of certain things that have happened to some of our old comrades so I thank you personally, for bringing this, what must be, a very sad Anniversary for all your family to our attention. LEST WE FORGET.

For the attention of Mr Robert Holland: Now that John Duncan has kindly determined that Private J. McCormack served with the 8th Battalion The Royal Scots during the Great War, either in 'G' or 'H' Companies, I may be to help. I will ask the Website Administrator if will kindly send you my email address.

Thanks to John Duncan for the info. That ties in as my stepfather was from Peebles so I presume his father was in the same regiment an as J McCormack and from Peebles also,which explains why he has the medals. Any idea where I go from here in trying to trace any living family

Information re Pte 7347 John McCormack mentioned a few posts before this. He was in the 8th Royal Scots, his number belongs to either the Peebles or Innerleithen Companies (G and H). So a wee starter for 10.

Hi all Royal Scots. Just to let you all know that about 36/7 old royals turned out for the Regimental Dinner on Saturday at the Royal Scots Club to celebrate our Regiments 382nd Birthday. The Food was excellent, Nice wee spiel from Col Martin Gibson and well hosted by Tam Douglas. The piper from the RSA pipes and drums was top notch and the singing, well, lets say that it wasn't x factor material but passable. LOL. A huge thank you must go to the Royal Scots Club for putting on a fantastic event. The most important part of the night was the fantastic company, and being amongst old friends. It would be great to see even more at our 383rd celebration dinner next year. Fantastic night had by all. A big thank you to all involved in making the night a huge success. UTR.
