WORLD WAR 2 VETERAN - FRANK VIDLER FORMERLY 1ST BATTALION - WW2 (BURMA) I became friendly with Frank VIDLER during my time at the Castle when part of my duties included looking after the war-time sections of the Regimental Association. Although we never met up often, we have always remained in contact. Just thought I would let my Regimental friends know that, without fail, Frank rings me every fortnight just to check how I am doing and always asks for Lyn.. If I happen not to be in... I always ring him back for a chin wag within a couple of days. Frank is now 95 and served with the 1st Battalion during World War Two. He lives in Croydon, Surrey. I am very humbled to receive his calls and think he is a wonderful gentleman. Frank is very much house bound these days and would love to receive a visit from an Ex-Royal. I would be grateful if anyone I know lives in the Croydon area could get in touch with me with a view to visiting Frank... I know that he would be thrilled. Many thanks. Bill Sutherland

Just a wee update on Danny Galloway, went to visit him tonight, he is still doing well under the circumstances. He was looking good and able to have short conversations, mostly f and swearing about his room that he has been moved into. Danny has now moved wards and has his own room in East Fortune House, Roodlands Hospital.

Dode, thank you for the info on our Xmas do. this is a wee bit of a logistical nightmare for me, I will come up on the Friday, book in somewhere, and see you and the lads on Saturday. However I am off to Spain PM late Sunday. Hopefully I will make some sort of train to get me back home in time to get to Spain for Xmas and New year. Her indoors and I quote is ("Gathering her brows like gathering storm, nursing her wrath to keep it warm"), Anyway, I am still here which is a bonus, so see you guys in December, a special message for Jimmy Bain, I should not be here, neither should you, but we both are, so lets go ahead together.!!!

Hi. Glad to hear that Billy Gilmour got a great send off with a lot of Royal Scots there to bid him farewell. I would have loved to have attended but unfortunately, like many others, unable due to work commitments. I may have not been there in person but my thought were there with him and his family. As I keep saying, to all our old comrades who have went to the big NAAFI in the sky, keep my seat warm and my pint cold. RIP .
