    Today is the 380th anniversary of the granting of a Charter to Sir John Hepburn in 1633 to raise a Regiment of Foot and thus the Regimental Day of The Royal Scots (The Royal Regiment), sadly no more.

    This is also the Regimental Day The Royal Regiment of Scotland, our successors.

    Just off to a lunch and a wee celebration.
