Memorial Service, November 2017, Edinburgh, Scotland
A memorial service was held in Edinburgh by Legion Scotland and myself (Anna – RACC chair and daughter of Stanley McKessock) and another daughter of a Convoy Veteran attended. Hilda (daughter of veteran Ron Mackie) and her husband Colin attended the full service and laid the RACC wreath and later we left a memorial cross at the Scott Monument gardens for our Fathers, went for dinner and raised a glass to all our Fathers, Uncles and the Men of The Convoys.
On the 30th August 2016, Club 21 were represented at the event hosted by the Russian Federation on the Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh, Scotland. The photo above includes Anna C McKessock (Chair) with Veteran Ron Gabriel Mackie and his son Ronnie. Ron had a fantastic time as did all the Veterans.
We also had the Grandson of a Veteran (Anna’s nephew, who is a Royal Marine Bugler) who attended events in Russia.
