Many of us spent yesterday in the presence of the late Danny Morgan's family and friends. We all shared fond memories of him and many stories were told Cabar Feidh Gu Brath. GBNF ever. Hopefully we can spent time together under much better circumstances.

It is again sad to see the passing of another member of the Signal Platoon. He was really one of the team and I'm sure his passing will be felt by many who served alongside him and his family.
God bless Mike McIntosh

I was a member of the Nishan VIII gun team in September 1971 along with lots of others from all of the Scot Div Regiments that were re-badged into QOH for the duration of the shoot. I am trying to find all / as many the surviving members of the team I can to find out if we could / fancy having some sort of reunion? As you know that team is unique in that it was the only team from the British Army to win that international comp - and by some margin as well. If anyone was a member of the team or knows someone that was, could they please contact me, or any of the following -Terry Cox, Arthur Anderson, or Jim Laughlin. Cheers

Good evening folks,

I received a phone call from Jim Liddle (nephew of our very own Charlie Liddle). Unfortunately Charlie has taken a bad turn and is back in hospital. After a long conversation with the Doctors Jim feels Charlie's time may be limited.

I will be only too happy to pass on any messages to Jim Liddle on behalf of our Regimental Family.

I will post any updates Jim sends me.

Get well soon Charlie CFGB

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.
