    The History of the Red Hackle and the Broken Square

    Hi all,

    I am wetting myself with excitement. I have never seen the following before. Tonight I stumbled upon it by pure chance.

    It is an article that appeared in the Glasgow Herald on Saturday October 7th, 1939.

    I had to copy this as 4 sections and then put them back as one. Apologies for the quality

    I found it easier to read by clicking on the "FULL SCREEN" tab at the top of the article

    Good morning from Canada Mr. Saunders. What a great find you have made. I tried to copy it however, I could get nothing below the heading "In North America" in the first column. Any idea how I may get the rest, I'd like to have the whole article for my scrapbook of the Regiment?
    We still have lots of snow and its as cold as a Mother-In-Law's kiss but it could be so much worse.
    I really enjoy this site. I enjoy the history, the banter between members.

    Regards to all,

    A really good article. I must have got certain historical facts wrong fifty odd years ago. Thanks for putting them straight now. Chris Rose
