Bob, I think the wee beesties of t'internet have been active against us - they probably hate all the fun and good chat on this site which is against moron code of practice, but they will never win! I only feel very sorry for Freddy and his family who set it all up and now have to sort out problems these idiots cause! Of course it COULD be SNP doing the dirty, cos they realise they will never win against the vast majority of our nation, and if that is the case, they will find themselves in a minority of two, perhaps three. Thanks to Freddy and co for their efforts, they are doing a great job Tom

Surprising how much I missed the site when it is down. Good to see it back up and running and many thanks to Freddy for his hard work and perseverence.

I am sure that I speak for everyone when I offer thanks to Freddie and the team for their efforts in putting the website back in order. Area all previous posts lost to the ether as I am sure that there are many comments from Bob Riley that should be preserved for posterity? Good to be back on line.

Ken, the plan was to retain the old forum as a 'read only' site and then start a fresh forum site. However the old forum is so full of bugs, buggered you might say, that it messed up all attempts to start  a new forum. The old forum is stored and in time it may be possible to revive it but in the meantime everyone will have to pick up where they left off! Thanks for the messages of support and let's hope we are now more secure. 461 malicious attacks on the site in the past week and it was closed down! A Happy Easter to all  Freddy Peall

Fred you are a special guy......getting 461 hits by idiots on what is really a great site for us OLD SQUADDIES  and allowing us to vent our frustration on the establishment who have not learned by their stupid mistakes. The one that at the moment is deadly to the welfare of my grandchildren future ,what I mean is the utter running down of our Armd Forces,remembering Maggie selling off the Navy and the early phases of redundances in the early  80's and what did we get was the Falklands ,and after reading the after action report from a mate  in the Welsh Guards  ,we were very lucky . So the Tories are at again running the defence of our country into the dirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So Fred thank you for your dedication keeping us in touch with guys who walked ....the walk and talked...the talk in their youth for a better world. Bob R   ( Ken will you be able to remember that ?????)

Hi Freddy, 1st of all, very well done to you & your son for getting us back "on track" again, but 2nd, I'm at a loss as to what happened to my first "post" yesterday which was submitted almost as soon as this new Forum went "live". Thirdly, on joining tonight I very briefly saw in the background a post  from Dave Fullard concerning the Election Debate screened last night - this disappeared almost immediately & I've been unable to locate it since. Gremlins, or am I being a "dumbkoff" !?! John (JKW)

JKW you were a bit prompt with your first post. The site had to come down again due to a bug lurking in the system and your post went with it. Should be ok now! Thanks for your support along the way. Maybe you should start a joke section on this site as appears on another similar site!!

Hi Fred the page you have been reading on jokes would not happen to be on the RAF Police Association website. When I have time I will place them on this forum. It is good to see he funny side of life. John Evans

 If the SCOTS DG site Freddy refers to was managed and/or supported half as well as this site it might attract more than the 4/5 stalwarts it does. One would think that with all the resources available to the Regiment it might produce a better site but it seems Facebook is where the bulk of the ex SCOTS DG members meet nowadays. Having had a peek at some of the comments from one or two of them apropos Scottish Independence and the English I'm  in no hurry to join that fraternity.

David, Tongue in cheek here -  I suppose you entered this , as the Irish would say "to be sure, to be sure" it gets on??? To be honest though, I am not surprised at your comments, the RSDG site never seemed to have the same support as this one, which is a shame, considering all the history that comes from the 3 parent Regiments. Things may improve, but Facebook is obviously their forte. Tom

Tom; at one time in my military career I was the unit accountant; despite not being in the RAPC. Hence the double entry!! It was a result of my impatience, instead of waiting a nanusecond for the thing to load I pressed reply again!! Not waiting has been a constant and enduring facet of my life thus far, it resulted in at least two unplanned pregnancies for "she who must be obeyed"  and numerous other incidents best left in the darkest closet of my mind. Hope you are having a good Easter!!
