I attended the Memorial Service yesterday in Palace Barracks to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the death of Lawrence Dickson.
LCpl Lawrence Dickson was killed in S Armagh while serving with 1RS on 17 March 1993. Padre Alan Knox conducted the service in the memorial garden where approx 60 people gathered. Most were members of The Royal Scots NI branch of the association with a few personnel from 1 Scots whose WO,s & Sgts mess kindly provided refreshments. A wreath was laid on behalf of The Royal Scots by Maxi McDonald and George Dickson laid a wreath on behalf of the Dickson family.
I along with Paul Young had the honour to represent our colleagues from Crossmaglen Royal Ulster Constabulary station with our many friends from the Royal Scots Regiment at this commemorative service. Time will never fade the respect and gratitude we continue hold for our colleagues, past and present, from the Royal Scots Regiment.

keep well and watch out for the red Indians and cowboys.

James, good to hear from you. I will ask HQ to send me your email address.
I’ll be in touch.
Your a good friend
I just came across this site. I’m looking for a real Royal Scots piper for a friends wedding (April) down in Cambridgeshire, England. Aw right..he’s a Glaswegian, but he’s a Scotsman and a good friend o’ mine. My father was SGT George Thomson (1960s-1970s) and my brother George Thomson, both Royal Scots, and nae doubt people reading this will know me Eddie (Royal Signals because dad insisted !) might know me – god knows, we’ve met enough times in and out of the army over the years. Anyway i’ll gee George a ring and see if he knows anyboody willing to travel this far south ‘fer a bevy’, but the ‘rest of ye’, always take care and ‘aw the best’.
Eddie Thomson, Sgt Royal Signals.
Hi Eddie if you cannot get a Royal Scot piper give me a shout as I’m in contact with a pipe band from Colchester as I’ve booked a piper for my daughter’s wedding next year. Regard Jim Menzies (Munro)
Thanks for replying. George gave me a call to tell me and it sounds good to me. The wedding is on 22 April in St.Neots, Cambridgeshire.
Having a piper would be just great and yer man is invited to the reception and accommodation will be provided.
So if you could put me in touch with somebody, that would be dandy.
