Nunshigum 71 years ago today

April 13, 2015

Just to acknowledge the sacrifice made by our predecessors on this very day 71 years ago.  It seems like only yesterday, not 21 years, that the SCOTS DG paraded to commemorate Nunshigum 50 at Stanley barracks, the former home of the JLR RAC in Bovington.  John Rochester the then RSM commissioned a plate to commemorate the occasion. It was John's last parade at Regimental duty before he retired.

Frankie, Well said, we must never forget the sacrifices made by all 3 of our parent Regiments over the past centuries, in many places all over the world. Where would we be if these people had not sacrificed their lives for the safety and survival of the citizens of this country who followed on over many many years since? I like to think that without their example, we would not have the Regiment and men that we do have today. I for one am eternally grateful that we do have such men who guided our futures. I have nothing but admiration and gratitude for them all, because without their sacrifices we know not what life would be like today. God bless them.
