  1. Hi, my father recently discovered that his father had 2 children with his first wife. One of those children was RSM John Louden. I have sadly found out that he was killed in a car crash with his wife and son in 1979. I posted this in the Facebook group and somebody suggested I post on here to see if anyone had any photographs, memories of him. I only have a couple of photographs. Looking forward to hearing from you. ☺

  2. It is with great sadness that we report the death at the age of 83 on Saturday 1st January 2022 of Robert Milne. He served in 1RS In the late 1950s and early 1960s. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time. The funeral will be a private family occasion.

  3. Now that Christmas and New Year celebrations are over…. could someone let us know where we stand with the “GOLDEN THREAD” now that 1 SCOTS no longer exist? Things seem to have gone very quiet since the initial announcement at the end of November! One example…. will the Regimental Colours be laid up?

    1. I would have expected some sort of response to my post by now, even if only just a “holding reply”.


  4. Then funeral for William Brockie will be held at Portobello Cemetery at 1.30pm on Thursday 30th December 2021. The family is keen for Royal Scots to attend.
