51st (Highland) Division

#1
Does anyone know if an OCA (Old Comrades Association) or such like exists for 51 HD? If so could you let me have contact details if possible?

Cheers in advance,

I don't know if there is one but I remember seeing an ex-serviceman's club in Crieff with an HD tac-sign above the door once. Unfortunately I cannot remember what club or establishment it was - it may have just been a legion club with a bit of local pride (three out of nine battalions were BW).

I know hat the 51 HD used to have reunions,but I think the last was in the 1960s.IIRC correctly "Monty" attended one!

I also know that the 51st vets go on pilgrimages back to the places where they saw action,and that they are organised by an ex 5BW man.If you want I can have a dig thru back issues of my Regimental Magazines to see if I can get you a contact address.

I remember stumbling by chance on a great reunion of old 51 HD boys in Kensington in c. 1982.

The ironic thing was they met in a pub called The Churchill Arms.

No hard feelings, then . . . .
