Good day at the Office


The bench presented by the QO HLDRS in 1983 was looking a wee bit worse for wear. With the help of Garnet Main from the Nairn Legion we removed it to the Legion cellar where I cleaned up the inscription plate and applied a couple of coats of wood stain. Now back in position looking onto the War Memorial.
Yours aye,




 Kelly Pugh Sends in Photos of her Dad


Hi Seoras,

I have sent you photos of my Dad Eddie Maley; my dad was invited to march with my father in law, who is a Vietnam veteran from the 7th Royal Australian Regiment.
However, a further offer was made, and that was that he could march with the British Airborne Division Contingent of the Paratroops Regiment.
He happily did so, and confirmed that it was a great day and that he is more than happy to experience it again next year.
He was the only Queens Own Highlander to march in Perth and he did so proudly and in his kilt.
Kind regards
Kelly Pugh, Eddie Maley's daughter
