#LISSEN. Anniversary time for Andy.

12 May

Today is my anniversary of turning up (late!) to join the ranks of The Kings Own Scottish Borderers at the depot in Berwick on Tweed to serve my National Service for Queen and Country. The year was 1955. Geez that’s 62 years ago, I’d better sit down. This pic shows me as a smart wee soldier at the end of basic training. I am the good looking one seated, second left. Travel, variety, excitement and growing up with a bunch of new friends was in store for Wee Andy. Och, I’m away down Memory Lane again.
