I was in Gordon Bks last summer. The old Officers Mess was being gutted and loads of pictures, plaques etc were just lying about the place. No one seemed to care what happened to it all. I bet a lot got skipped.

How sad is that? I wonder why retired officers were not informed and given the opportunity to acquire the memorabilia?

One who ended up with a commission? Initials GR?
That would be the one! I didn't realise he got commisioned. Everyone said that should have happened twenty five years ago but that he kept knocking it back! What's he up to these days

Not sure Hairyhaw, I will ask around at the next opportunity, maybe someone else will know - Cabarfeidh may be able to find out. I think 42 was Schools Liaison Officer at one time in the obvious part of the world. Top bloke.
