Jimmy Cumming

It is with deep regret that I must inform you that Jimmy Cumming passed away peacefully this morning (Sunday 28th August 2011).
Jimmy served in Germany, Northern Ireland, The Falklands, and the UK. He started his service as a young Jock in Osnabruck and over the years worked in the Signals Platoon, the Quartermaster's Department, and before his demob, as the Sergeant's Mess Manager in Munster.
Jimmy was from Glasgow, and as you would expect was a keen football fan and an ardent Rangers supporter, but above all he was a fiercely proud Queen's Own Highlander.
Jimmy (with the help of Annemarie) was always capable of recounting funny stories from the Battalion's past about characters and incidents that happened many years ago - a few some people would need alibis for!
Jimmy always made the effort to turn up to the Edinburgh Branch's functions and it was only recently that he had to curtail his activities when his failing health forced him to be less mobile - I know he was extremely sad at having to miss the Grand Reunion in Inverness this year.
Jimmy was a real character and we will all miss winding him up about the latest Rangers score the moment he stepped through the door of Leith Ex-Servicemen's Club!
Rest in Peace Jimmy
George Givens
Chairman, Edinburgh Branch.

Arrangements for Jimmy's funeral are as follows:-

Stewart (Geordie) Anderson MBE

Stewart Anderson passed away peacefully at his home this morning (Sunday 7th May 2011) after a long illness.
Stewart was a proud Seaforth Highlander and an even prouder Queen’s Own Highlander. He rose quickly through the ranks to become a Senior NCO and a well respected Sergeant’s Mess member. Before being commissioned he was RSM at Crigiehall and after commissioning he took over as MTO. However, many members of the Battalion, and particularly the wives, will best remember him as one of our finest Families Officers. Always a fair and even man with a great sense of humour, Stewart had a way of getting on with everyone from the lowliest of Private soldiers to the highest ranking Officers. It can be truly said that he was universally well respected and liked by everyone he came into contact with.
After retiring from the Army Stewart and Doris settled in Edinburgh and became regular supporters of the Edinburgh Branch of the Queen’s Own Highlanders Regimental Association and never missed a function if they could possibly help it.
Stewart will be sadly missed. Our deepest sympathies go to Doris and to Stewart’s sons, David and Stephen.
