From Cpl in the Loretto Pipes and Drums to Major Gen in a little under 40 years! I still put it down to CCF Summer Camp 1982 – the final two day yomp over Ben Ledi and then back from Loch Earn down to Callander. Formative!
In other news, the Scottish and North Irish Yeomanry have asked me to be their Honorary Colonel. Since Loretto CCF is affiliated, I think, it presents an opportunity to pay a visit? I am also Honorary Colonel of G&SUOTC (Glasgow OTC).”
