La­nark­shire Philatelic So­ci­ety met on Fri­day, Novem­ber 3, in Hamil­ton.

Mem­bers lis­tened to Gary Cheyne’s talk on ‘The Scot­tish Sol­dier’.

Through post­cards, stamps and cov­ers, he traced the de­vel­op­ment of Scot­tish sol­diers from their be­gin­nings as clan groups and gar­risons in var­i­ous cas­tles.

The dis­play gave de­tails of some of the many bat­tles fought by the High­land reg­i­ments.

And mem­bers viewed post­cards of var­i­ous reg­i­ments – The High­land Light In­fantry; The Seaforth High­landers; Royal Scots Greys; The Camero­ni­ans; The Black Watch; The Cold­stream Guards; The Scots Guards; The Royal Scots; Queen’s Own Cameron High­landers; King’s Own Scot­tish Border­ers; and The Gor­don High­landers.

Many of these evoked mem­o­ries, as some mem­bers had served them­selves in the Sec­ond World War.

The club’s next meet­ing will be in the Cale­do­nian Bowl­ing Club, Mother­well Road, Hamil­ton, on Fri­day, Novem­ber 17, at 7.30pm.

All are wel­come to at­tend.
