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.

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

The Signal Platoon had a very good reunion on Sat night in Redford Barracks, this being our third in ten year. We had the use of the garrison sergeants mess which was a great venue, that and a good buffet. We also had the use of plenty accommodation alas not many came to use it. This being organised by Billy Heaney and Billy Lee ( Thank you guys you did everyone proud ).
It was great to see a few faces that had never been before, one we had never seen in 43 years, nice to see you John Farquhar, also Stewart ( Scotty) Scott fae the Galloway Hills . Others that had travelled a fair distance Barney and Lackie from Colchester. I must mention a very gutsy strong spirited John Pool it was great to see you John, you may not be in the best of health but you have still got your fighting spirit.

We had free accommodation, a good venue, good buffet and cheap drink and the
company that did come really had a good evening but yet all the borderers we
have met over the past couple of years who said great let me know when the reunion is. If all those Borderers were true to there word we should have had 60 to 70 there just like our first reunion.

Where is the spirit "Once a Borderer always a Borderer"

Hopefully there will be some photo's in the images soon

Ronnie, I have been told that the KOSB wouldn't have the resources to filter this spam. It is a low-life thing for these grubs to do, especially on this site, but we just have to ignore it. Don't let it put you off. Regards, Jacqueline

What is going on ? why are all these loan companies being allowed to advertise on this web site, does no one edit what is put on this site I find it worrying that these people or companies are allowed to do this when we have RBL or SSAFA to help soldiers or veterans who are in financial difficulties please put a stop to this.
