Gordon Highlanders Monument, Castlegate
Gordon Highlanders Monument, Castlegate
I saw the Gordons parade before H.M. the Queen at Holyrood Palace in, I think, 1990, when it was already known that they were to be disbanded as a result of post-Cold War defence cuts by John Major's government. It was one of the most stirring and at the same time most poignant sights I've ever seen. It was one more loosening of the ties of Union as yet another historic Scottish regiment with a long and proud service was no longer needed by the British Army.
