  3. RS REMEMBRANCE EVENTS 2022 AT THE CENOTAPH

    The Southern Branch of the Association is kindly organising the Royal Scots participation in Remembrance events in London in Nov 2022. These will include:
    12 Nov at 1800 – A Regimental cross planting service a the Field of Remembrance
    13 Nov Royal Scots contingent participation in the parade at the Cenotaph
    13 Nov after the parade – Lunch
    Anyone wishing to attend any of these events should notify the Chairman of the Southern Branch, Christopher Delacombe or the Regt Sec at admin@theroyalscots.co.uk no later that 16 Aug 2022. There may be some flexibility for late additions to the cross planting service or lunch, but this is a hard deadline for participation in the parade.

    1. Dear Association Officers and Branch Chairmen

      I am now in the process of planning the regimental Remembrance Weekend activities in London. These include the very special Cenotaph Parade preceded the evening before by a regimental cross planting service in the Westminster Abbey Field of Remembrance and with the parade on the Sunday traditionally followed by a lunch in the East India Club in St James’s Square.
      Please see the email below which I circulated yesterday and bring it to your branch members’ attention. We would hope to see as many marchers from North of the border as possible.
      I need to know the names of any prospective marchers by no later than 17 August along with their personal details for security reasons as follows:
      Surname
      First name
      Rank
      Date of birth
      Place of birth
      Country of birth
      Home address – including post code
      Service number
      Dates of service

      Let us make it a really good regimental turn out

      Best wishes to all

      Christopher Delacombe

  4. Very sad and after a long battle. Roger, known then as Lt Roger Eady, joined IRS in Berlin along with me and saw service in Libya thereafter. Set up Swinfen Telemedicine (The Swinfen Charitable Trust) with Pat, his wife in 1999. both awarded the MBE for this service which provides access to free medical support for the poor, sick and disabled across the developing world. HRH The Princess Royal is its Patron.

  5. Golf Match against 1 RANGER Regiment

    The above friendly game will take place at Merchants Golf Club on Friday the 24th Jun 22, first tee off time is at 11:00hrs. Can we all please meet at the club house for between 10:00 hrs – 10:15 hrs.

    The cost of the golf will be £20 per player. The following have notified their intention to play are:

    Rab Johnstone, David Milne, Brian McGeachie, Noel Martin, George Grant and Mark Renton.

    1. For a variety of reasons, it would be great to have a very good turnout to march this year. Don’t worry if you can’t find your trews or glengarry, blazer or medals, but super if you can, it would just be good to see as many Royals who are able to do so marching. I look forward to seeing you there.

      Yours Aye

      George
