Just noticed the cap badge of Colour Sergeant Stewart. It bears a strong resemblance to the cap badge we have today in the Royal Regiment of Scotland. Will get a picture for you. Comment left on 24 November 2011 at 15:06 by Flora Thomson
That's my granddad - I'm proud even though I never met him - that's who I was named after. I know there is a picture of him and Monty in the desert if anybody has it would you be kind enough to download it please. Comment left on 01 June 2023 at 22:59 by David Stewart Morrison
