I am 3/4 Scot and owe my alleigence to Clan Donald as my maternal grandfather was a MacAllister. My grandmothers were a MacKinnon and a Douglas. Paternal grandfather a German - oh well can't be perfect.

Thank you everyone.See the post regarding the campaign, to try to convince our Prime Minister to Save the Historic Regiments.(It is under Military matters I think.)
Just to tell you that the wives and families of the soldiers do not want the changes either.Nor do the majority of Scottish people.
That is why the other British contributor, asked for your members to visit the web site and sign the online petition, if they feel they wish to help try to save the regiments for posterity.

As President Franklin D. Rooseveldt said,
"In the field of world policy;I would dedicate this nation to the policy of the good neighbour."

I hope the Scottish soldiers have been good neighbours, to those lands where they tried to keep the peace.Maybe now is the time to hope world opinion will save their regiments?
