The Golden Thread

Right. Now that I have got that last lot off my chest, I am in a much finer condition to toddle off to the theatre.

To see this, no less. Given that my Grandfather and Great-Grandfather both served in the Watch (commanding the same company of the same battalion of the same regiment no less and the former earning 2 DSOs and an MC as he did so), I shall be fascinated.

With luck, I might bump into Robert and we might have a chinwag. More later.

When I was wee, the standard response to seeing a soldier from a Highland regiment was to point and chant "Kiltie, kiltie caul' bum".
