From Giles Nevill:
I have finally heard from the RBL – and as expected, the scale of the parade has been very considerably reduced and every contingent has now been allocated 8 tickets (total of 2200 on parade to maintain social distancing) for this years march past. (Since this announcement, it remains to be seen whether this will change in light of the latest Government dictat of groups of no more than 6 people?)
While this year, we as a Regiment won’t sadly be parading as normal, it would be good to have a bit of Queen’s Own Highlander Blue Mafia presence in London. To that end, if anyone would like to parade, please let me know and I sort out the administration to get tickets – perhaps some the more southern based Highlanders, or indeed further afield, would like to attend ? I am afraid that there won’t be anything specific laid on – hotel, pub, transport etc, but I am sure those who wish to march will be able to sort out a post parade beer or two!
Please let me know if you wish to march – it will certainly be a unique parade and experience ! (hopefully one never to be repeated, in that everything will be back to normal for November 2021.) The eMail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
