1. From Colin Gray

    I write as the Secretary of the City of Dundee Combined Ex-Services Association to inform you that the City of Dundee will be hosting a short parade for Armed Forces Veterans and Youth Organisations on Saturday 23rd June 2018. The parade will step off from Dundee High School at 1200 hours marching down Reform Street to the City Square. The raising of the Armed Forces Flag will commence on our arrival, then an inspection of the Veterans conducted by Lt General Sir ASH Irwin KCB, CBE will be conducted.

    The inspection will be followed by a couple of speeches then a brief church service, followed by the march off.

    After the parade, lunch will be available in the Caird Hall consisting of Sausage Rolls, Sandwiches and a beer or two.

    Your Regimental Association Veterans are cordially invited to attend this parade and all I would request that if they will be attending, please let me know by emailing me at
