Dear [email protected] ,

The COVID-19 travel certificate has been created in a bid to restore the freedom of travel, which has been put at a halt for over a year now, since the pandemic erupted all over the block.

Through the certificate, the Commission intends to remove travel restrictions as entry bans, quarantine obligation, and testing.

Those holding such a document will be able to travel throughout Europe without the need to quarantine or test for COVID-19

The Passport will be issued to all those who have been fully vaccinated against the Coronavirus, with one of the four vaccines approved by the National Medicine Agency, which are:

AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)

The certificate will prove that its holder has been vaccinated while also containing additional information on the vaccine, as when the doses were administered, who is the manufacturer, etc.

Many Congratulations from The Royal Scots Regimental Family on your 103rd Birthday today, the Glorious Twelfth, to John Errington

John fought with the 1st Battalion in Belgium and France in May 1940 when The Royal Scots played a pivotal role in enabling the Allies withdrawal from Dunkirk. He was taken prisoner after fierce fighting in and around Le Paradis.

The Regiment sent him a card fitting for his grand old age.

Major David Dickson called him this morning to wish him a Very Happy Birthday. John was in great spirits, laughing and also saying Le Paradis was a very long time ago. He is going out for lunch in Shrewsbury with his daughter.

John’s Regimental Memories are captured in the film Scottish Soldiers World War 2 Memories, which can be viewed at https://www.theroyalscots.co.uk/scottish-soldiers-world-war-2-memories/

Message from Brigadier George Lowder MBE The Chairman of Regimental Trustees
Regimental Office Manager (ROM). Following an open recruitment process, I am delighted to report that Lt Coll (Ret’d) David Jack has accepted an offer to be the ROM. David Jack is a former Royal Scot/ Royal Regiment of Scotland officer. We anticipate that David will start the takeover on Monday 2 August. Jimmy will retire in November, having ensured that the administration of benevolence has transferred satisfactorily to SCOTS, conducted the handover to David and ensured that Remembrance 2021 is also handed over. Ellie has opted for redundancy but will remain in post until the 30th of September assisting with the hand over.

As I announced in May The Regimental Trustees met and appointed Major Stuart Marshall as Chairman of the Regimental Association wef 30 June.
At the same time he was also appointed a Regimental Trustee also effective from 30 June.

Before he was commissioned in 2006 Stu served as the last RSM of The Royal Scots.

Stu and I have now handed/taken over and he is firmly in the chair. I am sure that together we all wish Stu the very best for the future.

I would also like to say a big thank you to all who have supported me in the role over the last six and a half years, and a special thanks to the Association office bearers for all that they have done and continue to do in support of the association and the wider
Regimental family.

My g-uncle, 15th Bn. Royal Scots, was killed in April 1918 and his name appears at Ploegstreet. We have his British War & Victory Medal with the accompanying documents and two service medals and would like to put these into a shadow box presentation for my grandson who carries his name. I would like to include such things as examples of a cap badge, photograph of a uniform etc that would he would have worn - are such things available and how would I go about finding them? Thank you
An enquiry was made to The Canadian Scottish Regimental Museum that we are unable to answer. Was wondering if anyone has ever seen a sporran cantle like this. Owner believes it is from a Royal Scots sporran based on the badge (unfortunately upside down while it was being photographed by owner during refurbishment). Possibly 9th Bn RS?

My grandfather did his National services initially In the Royal Scots in approximately 1952/3 before being moved to the royal Scots fusiliers. His name was Duncan Rankine from Lochmaben in Dumfries & Galloway. I would love to know if anyone on here or has a relative, who knew Papa and maybe connect him up with them. He is 88 and always talks fondly of his time doing nations service with a ‘great bunch of men’
Anyone on here remember my Dad Sam Chapman he was 83 last month
