    Re: Keeping Paddy’s memory alive

    Guess what , yesterday I received a surprise phone call from an Arbroathian lass who is married and lives in the Netherlands and yesterday she received from her Mum in Arbroath her weekly copy of the Arbroath Herald and she knows the story about Paddy the Wee Regimental Dog and having read the newspaper report about me laying the Poppy Cross at the grave on the 90th Anniversary of the wee dog's death she wanted to know more about the Highland Cyclist Bn and the Army Cyclist Corps etc ........

    Amazing the interest shown which is pleasing to know as I thought folks would think it's only a dog so what ....

    And the Arbroath Herald being read in the Netherlands too !
