    Sunday 24th October 2021

  6. Looking for some information and direction please. My uncle recently passed and it fell to me to clear out the house. In his possession were postcard photos while he was stationed in Egypt amongst other places (presumably Palestine), regimental militaria including medals and diary from WWI belonging to his father – my grandfather. Also included was an honourable discharge scroll. I’m not sure if these are things of interest to the regiment but no-one in the family has shown an interest. Can you help?

    1. Georgina,

      My father was a Royal Scot during WW2, he told a story about a Sgt Dugeon. If that was a relative of yours, please email me on

  8. Many Congratulations from The Royal Scots Regimental Family on your 103rd Birthday today,
    the Glorious Twelfth, to John Errington

    John fought with the 1st Battalion in Belgium and France in May 1940 when The Royal Scots played a pivotal role in enabling the Allies withdrawal from Dunkirk. He was taken prisoner after fierce fighting in and around Le Paradis.

    The Regiment sent him a card fitting for his grand old age.

    Major David Dickson called him this morning to wish him a Very Happy Birthday. John was in great spirits, laughing and also saying Le Paradis was a very long time ago. He is going out for lunch in Shrewsbury with his daughter.

    John’s Regimental Memories are captured in the film Scottish Soldiers World War 2 Memories, which can be viewed at

    Once a Royal always a Royal

  9. Sad to see the passing of so many former Royal Scots colleagues, in the past month or so,RIP to them all, our condolences to all the friends and family & loved ones,at such a sad time for all concerned.
    Dave & Janet
