Prince lends support to project
PRINCE William, the Duke of Cambridge, also known as the Earl of Strathearn in Scotland, has become patron of Thin Red Line Appeal, to secure the future of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regimental Museum.
The project will enable the museum to be redeveloped to meet the expectation of visitors to one of Scotland’s key heritage sites, and to educate future generations on the remarkable role played by the soldiers of one of Scotland’s great Highland regiments over the past 220 years.
Brigadier Bruce Russell, chairman of the Museum Trust, said: ‘I am delighted that the Earl of Strathearn has given his support and encouragement to this appeal, designed to safeguard the memory of a unique part of the British Army and of the nation’s proud military and cultural heritage.’
