My Father Christopher Richards Served in The Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders During the Korean War.
He sadly passed away 06 June 1984 at the age of 48.

He was so proud To have served in the highland regiment and lost a number of good friends during the war.
I only noticed this site while planning S day trip To Edinburgh Castle 13/04/17.

Hello to all. A very belated thank you to everyone who made me so welcome in November at remembrance day parade, particularly Giles who went well out his way to ensure my participation. It felt so good to be part of the "family" again.

Good day,

I am not sure if you can help me but here goes. I am an ex CPO in the RN and hoped that someone in your organisation might be able to point me in the right direction. My wife's uncle has just celebrated his 88th birthday up here in Fife. He often speaks of the times when he was serving in the Seaforth Highlanders 1947-53 in Ipoh, Malaysia and Singapore but has not had any contact with his Regiment since those days, as far as I am aware. As he ages his memory is fading but thoughts of those years bring a smile to his face.

I wondered if you may know of any archives, film footage or old boy networks that may exist, which you or I could make available to him. Anything that could shine a light on the period he served would bring fond memories flooding back and may enable him to interact with old comrades.

I thank you in anticipation of your reply.
Kind regards,
Bob Davies.

I was so sorry to read the obituary for Lt. Col. David J. S. Murray.

I served in the QOCH at the Inverness depot when he was in charge.

I respected him as a commanding officer who was very good with those who served in the depot. You new where you stood with him and always got a good hearing.

Though a sad reading his memories brought a smile to me.     Those memories go back to 1957-9.
