The Queen, God Bless Her!

January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am

Captain Martin Holme, late of the ‘Royal Highland Fusiliers‚Äô, ‘Princess Margaret’s own Glasgow and Ayrshire Regiment.’
Lt Col Winston Churchill commanded the 6th Battalion, Royal Scottish Fusiliers in 1915 on the western front. Sir Winston Churchill was later to remark, many years later;” Although an Englishman, it was in Scotland I found the best three things in my life-my wife, my constituency and my regiment.” His section of the front in 1915 was at Ploegsteert and whilst ‘Winnie’ was in charge this front became one of the most aggressive. WSC personally made 36 forays across ‘no man’s land’. Our Speaker for the ‘Don Boyle Oration’ this year is also a proud Scottish soldier, Martin Holme.¬† Martin’s regiment are successor to the regiment Lt Col. Churchill served in. (The Royal Scottish Fusiliers and the Highland Light Infantry amalgamated in 1959 and became the R H F.)

The subject of Martin’s talk is ‘The Queen God Bless Her’, and he will share with us his recollections of Her Majesty, her family and the Welsh Corgi’s whilst he was a Member of the Royal Guard at Balmoral. Martin gave this talk to the R U S I last year to great acclaim and we appreciate the opportunity to hear it at our meeting on May 27th.This subject will have universal appeal and we invite you to bring your partners and friends along.

Join us at the MNC on May 27th.

Meeting starts at 7.30.  All welcome!
