Veterans: essential element of our Regimental Family

20 May 2016

It is no coincidence that the second image on our appeal page is of our veterans – they are one of the essential elements that make up our regimental family.

The Government have marked their importance by presenting all veterans with special veterans’ badges; and a monument to honour veterans, past, present and future, stands at “Holy Corner” at Knightswood in Glasgow.  The Veterans Memorial is thought to be unique in Britain and was an initiative by the West of Scotland & Glasgow branch of the Parachute Regimental Association and Glasgow City Council.

Annual parades are held to commemorate Victory in Europe (VE) Day and Victory over Japan (VJ) Day; and the recent parade saw veterans from all regiments and corps, including The Royal Highland Fusiliers and The Highland Light Infantry.
