A somewhat sobering moment for me. Watching Songs of Praise on Remembrance Day evening as it shows Highland soldiers in their kilts running into battle on a World War One battlefield. This was followed by footage of the barbaric and frightening conditions experienced by the Merchant Navy personnel on an Atlantic convoy.
Then you remember that this was your grandfather and your father…
Those handsome and proud Musselburgh men:
Henry Frew of the Gordon Highlanders
John Archibald Frew of the Merchant Navy
This evening I salute you both and each and every one of your brave comrades.

Well said Stewart.
There are those who say “Remembrance” is to glorify war or that it is political but it is not. It is honouring those who were forced to fight and die for our freedom.
Thanks Clive. I am glad you feel the same way. Respect.
