Well done fella's I am a former member of the 25th Battalion The Royal Queensland Regiment .In the 1970's I think the Officers of the KOSB presented a beer stein to the Officers and Men of the 25th Battalion The Royal Queensland Regiment it is filled with ale and as a tradition it is drank from by those in the colour party when the colours are paraded , I myself have drank from it on more than 1 occasion . In 1989 there was a contingent sent to Exercise with your unit. Once again well done

Would love to find out if there is any further information about the Kings Own Scottish Borderers serving in France Holland and Germany during WW2. My Father Thomas Frederick Day served with the regiment and was I believe part of the Lowlands Division. When he was demobbed in 1947 he held the rank of Acting Colour Sergeant.

I am trying to locate my uncle, James (Seamus) Doherty who enlisted in the KOSB in late 64/early 65. I believe he did one, possibly two tours of Aden. if anyone has any recollection of him or knows of his whereabouts could they please contact me. Many thanks, Catherine Doherty

am from united kingdom i got married at the age of 30 i have only one child and i was living happily .After 5 year of my marriage my husband behavior became so strange and i don't really understand what was going on, he packed out of the house to another woman i love him so much that i never dreams of losing him, i try my possible best to make sure that my husband get back to me but all to no avail i cry seeking for help i discussed it with my best friend and she promise to help me he told me of a man called priest Aluta he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love issues he cannot do that is why they call him the great doctor. I contacted him And i told him everything that happen all he told me is that i should not worry that all my problems will be solved immediately. He told me what to do to get my husband back and i did, he said after 4 days my husband will come back to me and start begging, it really happen i was very surprise and very happy our relationship was now very tight and we both live happily again.So my advice for you now is to contact this same email address supremespellcaster (@) if you are in any kind of situation concerning love issues and any other things that give you problems contact him.

I would like to thank Billy Heaney and Gogs Little and Billy Lee for putting on a great night on Saturday. It was great to see everyone that attended we had a good time and a laugh. Its just a pity more did not turn up. For what its worth the way I look at it is not everyone can say they are part of the signals platoon reunion. The only other reunion that takes place is the P+D s reunion. well apart from Minden but that a whole regiment thing. so come on lads if it happens again lets attend
