The Colonel, HRH The Duke of Kent, attended The Gathering on Sunday 2nd October, at Brechin Castle. A fantastic day, where the Scots Guards family were able to celebrate and toast the Regiment. Both the Pipes and Drums from the 1st Battalion and The Regimental Band of The Scots Guards made the journey up to Scotland to make the weekend a wonderful salute to all things Scots Guards

Albert Medal – Regimental Headquarters

By News, Regimental Headquarters | No Comments

The Regimental Lieutenant Colonel hosted a lunch at the Cavalry and Guards Club on 8th December 2014 and invited Mrs Linnet Waghorn and her son to view her late Uncle Second Lieutenant Grey Leach’s Albert Medal in Gold awarded posthumously to him, after he displayed conspicuous self sacrifice in France on 3rd September 1916, in which he lost his own life. Mrs Waghorn had agreed the The Regiment could buy the Medal, rather than take it to Auction.

All those who had supported and assisted in ensuring that the Regiment obtained the Medal now on display at Regimental Headquarters, were also invited as were Members of the Regimental Historical Committee who had also helped in the process.
