As I have had a 'few' people asking me, "What date is the Berwick Minden Parade on this year"? I thought, that in my capacity as El Presidente of the Berwick Branch,
I'd mention here. It's on Saturday the 30th of July 2016.
Sadly, this year marks the 10th Anniversary of the Amalgamation of the Regiment.
However! I am still very much looking forward to 'bumping-in' to everybody this again. And, at The Raising of the Regiment Dinner on the 18th of March

Is it possible to obtain a regiment photo of my dad. He is turning 80 in February and looking for a momento for him. His name is Thomas Anderson Harrison reg no 23022218. He was with you around 1953? as a lance corp.
Hope you can help.

It is with sadness that I have to announce the passing of former Borderer Dougie McIntyre.
Dougie who lived in Motherwell and was 50 years old, served in the Battalion in the late 80's and early 90's died on Friday the 15th January of a suspected heart attack.
The funeral will be taking place at Daldowie Crematorium.
Details will follow once known.

Monica and Heather Lowther have asked me to convey their deep gratitude and heartfelt thanks to everyone who posted messages of sympathy and sorrow on the sad and tragic loss of Charlie, who died on 31st December. They have been greatly comforted by the huge support shown by so many family and Regimental friends at this time of great sadness.

Monica and Heather have also said that they are extremely grateful to those Borderers who managed to get to the church service and funeral today and pay their final respects. They felt so pleased that many of Charlie's Service friends were able to find the time to attend this sombre occasion, to add some lightness with memories of a great man.

I, in turn, cannot thank Monica enough for affording Bill McKenna and I the great privilege of taking a cord each, to assist the family in laying Charlie to rest.
