  7. Remembrance Events 2018

    Please see the News feed for the full list of events.

    Remembrance Week 2018 is going to be busy and will concentrate on commemorating the end of World War One 100 years ago. This gives us our opportunity to pay our respects and Remember the events and loss of life in numerous conflicts. Many will be attending Services in their local town/area and it is hoped that the Regiment can be as widely represented as possible in our Regimental Area. There are a number of events that the Regimental Family will be involved in, some of these are organised externally and others are purely Royal Scots events; see below for details of RS events.

    Co-ordination: The Regimental lead on all Remembrance issues is the Regimental Administrator, Captain Jimmy Springthorpe who can be contacted during office hours on 0131 557 0405 or email jimmy.springthorpe@theroyalscots.co,uk.

    Wreaths: Representatives/Branches laying wreaths on behalf of the Regiment are responsible for ordering their wreaths from the Regimental Office and arranging collection from the Office prior to the event. Please don’t leave until the last minute. Wreaths for the events at the Garden of Remembrance and Edinburgh City Chambers have been pre-ordered and will be delivered to those locations.

    Dress: while in no way mandatory, it is hoped that those attending will wear, if in possession, Blazer, Trews/Flannels, RS Tie, Glengarry with RS Cap Badge, Medals and of course, a Poppy.
