Margaret Munro- Remembrance Parades in Edinburgh – November 2018

Remembrance Parades in Edinburgh – November 2018

On the 11th November the Branch members yet again stepped up to the mark and turned out in large numbers.  The service outside the City chambers to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War was particularly poignant.  The three wreaths were laid by George Givens (Queen's Own Highlanders), Ritchie Turner (Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders), and Bobby Munro (Seaforth Highlanders).

Following the church service in St Giles Cathedral a people's procession made their way up to the Scottish National War Memorial at the top of Edinburgh Castle to remember that day 100 years ago when the Armistice was declared.  Again wreaths were laid by Jim Elliot for the Queen's Own Highlanders, Ritchie Turner, for the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, and Duncan MacCallum for the Seaforth Highlanders. 

Leith Ex-Servicemen’s Club was absolutely bouncing after the parades as many of our members and other veterans crowded in for refreshments, banter, and music.   

Attached are photographs of some of our members forming up on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle and one in the club afterwards - with young Norman Gillies, son of Alasdair Gillies

 Garden of Remembrance in Edinburgh

Good afternoon Seoras,

 These photos were taken  on Monday at the Opening of the Garden of Remembrance in Edinburgh, and we'd be very grateful if you would  put them on the Rgt website.  Unfortunately due to the shadows & the problems I'm having with my eye sight they're not the best.  The 2 ladies in the group photo are the late Drum Major Wattie Grant's wife & daughter.

AFD parade in Edinburgh

We'd be very grateful if you could put these photos on the regimental website for us.
I think I speak for many when I say it was the best ever AFD parade in Edinburgh. Massive turn out, march along George St rather than the "back streets" Stalls, entertainment & free beer for the troops in St Andrews Square Gardens AND the sun shining.
Many thanks,
Margaret & Bob

 Edinburgh Branch Summer Dance 2017 Photos

Tosh, here are some photos taken at the Edinburgh Dance last night.  I think it's a shame people seem to post every thing on Face Book now and not put it on your web site.  A sign of the times I suppose, but not everyone is on FB.
