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.

Any/all profit comes back to RACC and helps pay for the website hosting, as everyone who helps us does so for free (and pays their own way voluntarily to events etc)
We use ‘lulu’ print by demand so that the publications will always be available to you – so please do have a wee look. We’ve also put up a couple of downloads of The contents of newsletters 1 to 11 (so you can see what is in them) and an Order form (if you prefer ‘talking’ to us via post) We do have some items here in Dundee, Scotland (where RACC is based) and are happy to post these out too – so please do get in touch if you have any queries.
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.
