1RHF Operation Banner - Memorial Appeal
at The Palace Barracks Memorial Garden


Image

Next year will be the 45th anniversary of the 3 Jocks murders and it was thought to not only remember this event but what
better opportunity than to erect a small memorial within the garden of Remembrance as we are the only Scottish Regiment
who don't have a memorial in place for our fallen during Op Banner.

Plans are therefore in place to finally have a 1RHF Memorial Stone placed within the Palace Barracks Memorial Garden.

Badges like that shown above will be sold to help fund the appeal.

To kick off the appeal a fantastic donation of $1000 has been promised by Charlie Bailiff, Chic was in Charlie Company in
the 70's and like many of us felt the loss of our brother Fusiliers, infact when Rab Thompson was RTU'd back to the Bn Rab
took over Chic's section, Chic had just came back from his Skill at Arms course and so Chic was posted to the Bridge of Don
replacing Rab, he always felt that he could have been the one killed instead of Rab had it not been for his RTU.
A sobering thought indeed.

Full details and further information about the appeal can be found HERE.

Stolen Medals
Still Not Recovered



Image

Heads up folks this is a big one the theft of medals including a VC, MC and a MID this soldier was obviously
a hero of the greatest magnitude let's get this spread far and wide and get these back to the family!

The medals were originally won by Lt.-Col. Walter Lorrain BRODIE, of the Highland Light Infantry and were
contained in a wooden frame, 7”x 5”. If the norm that applies to WWI Medals they will all be engraved!

More information HERE.

An RHF Regimental History forum has been started, this will provide those small snippets of
