At the Commanding Officer’s Parade with Alpha and Bravo Companies, the Regimental Colours and the Pipes and Drums on parade, the Foundation publicly recognized four donors. Their contributions to the Regimental Family over time have allowed us to publish the regimental history ‘Capital Soldiers’ and to fund the purchase of ceremonial uniforms which will permit the Regiment to parade a 100 person guard in full highland dress.
Each donor was presented with an autographed copy of ‘The Machine Gunner’ by Alex Colville. Mr. Colville is an internationally renowned painter who served as a war artist during WWII. This painting is one of the few in which the subject’s regiment is recognizable; in this case he is a member of the Camerons. Prior to his death, Mr Colville signed 24 copies of this work with the proviso that the Foundation use them to recognize support to the Regimental Family.
