Greetings from Foulis

Dear Clansmen & Clanswomen we wish you the very best for Christmas and New Year from all the family.

As predicted last year, this pandemic is far from finished and our thoughts are with all those that may have lost loved ones or suffered from this terrible virus.

Alpha and I consider ourselves most fortunate that we have two of our children and their families living on our doorstep and the third just a few hours’ drive away in Edinburgh, which has allowed us all to be together two or three times this year in between lockdowns and at least to see something of our eight grandchildren regularly.

I thought during the Festive Season you might like to listen to a recent recording of the pipe tune ‘The Heroes of St Valery’ released by The Royal British Legion Scotland and Poppy Scotland played by The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and The Red Hot Chilli Pipers on the link below.

As it explains in the introduction the tune commemorates the 10,000 men (including my father and his brother Hector) of the 51st Highland Division who fought, died or were captured at the fall of France in June 1940. In the case of the brothers, it meant five years of imprisonment as POW’s.

Hector & Alpha
