Final march of the 51st Highland Division

Veterans of the 51st Highland Division will be marching today in Perth for what is expected to be the final time. A TA Division set up in 1908, the division served at St Velery, Holland the Ardennes in WW2, and a tapestry will be dedicated which portrays their contribution to the war.

The last time? This is so sad. I have the last trooping of the colours and the farewell celebration on tape. I hope the regimental museums are being maintained.
