    Hi guys. I’ve not been on for a while. Just to inform you guys that might not have seen it on social media.
    There’s a ROYAL SCOTS gathering this Friday. 22nd of December. Looks like it’s going to be another great turnout.
    Some of us are meeting in the Guildford arms East end of princes street at 1730/1800hrs. Main body to meet around 1930hrs at the picture house on Lothian road . If you want to come along then please do. A few Christmas beers with fellow veterans is just the medicine.

    I’d like to wish all Royal Scots and your families a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year . UTR
