SIGNAL PLATOON REUNION:

Below is the gist of a letter I have done for a planned Signal Platoon Reunion. To get a copy of the full letter, please get in touch with me directly, I need your e-mail address or full postal address. It is hoped that we get a good response.

A Signal Platoon Reunion is currently being arranged for all those who have served in the Signal Platoon in the King's Own Scottish Borderers at any time (that does not include attending a Signal Cadre). The last Reunion was a roaring success and so many people who came on that night said that it would be a great idea to meet up again with some old (or is it older?) friends. The time has come for the third gathering and we hope that you will come and make this night an equally great event. Due to recent changes in the structure of the Army and possible difficulties in obtaining a venue in future, this may be the last chance for a Reunion so please make an effort to be there.

A stag night, with cold buffet, has been arranged for Saturday 27th September 2014 at 7.30pm in the Garrison WO?s & Sgt?s Mess at Redford Cavalry Barracks, Colinton Road, Edinburgh. There will be some barrack-room accommodation available in Redford Cavalry Barracks for those who need to stay in the camp. It is regretted that we do not have the use of the Garrison Officers Mess. A charge of �10, to be paid in advance, is required to cover the cost of the evening.

To ensure that we can gain maximum coverage, please get in touch with everyone you know of who would be interested and give them the details of this letter. Alternatively, give us their address or telephone number and we will do the rest.

Looking for Mick Tait R Sigs Rear Link, Joe Black ex Sigs Pl and John Farquhar ex Sigs Pl and RCT both last heard of in the Edinburgh area. Also any ex Sig Pl member. A reminder that the Sigs Pl reunion is on the 27 Sept and it would be great to see as many old, bold, and young and as many bosses as possible as this will probably be the last time we can us Redford Bks

HI Eileen ,
This is the first time ive used this site, so please forgive me if there are any errors in getting this message to you.
My wife's grandfather is Frederick Price who was also a member of the K O S Bs 6th battalion . I have only just sorted some photo's to put on our Ancestry family tree , one being for Frederick Price in a group photo in uniform which was taken at what I think is a training camp maybe just before they were shipped off to France.
You are welcome to have a copy

Kind Regards,
Patrick Gale
