Cameronians Memorial, Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow

I was unfortunately too late to post this on Cameronian Day (which was yesterday for all those unaware) but I'm happy to post it here today.

We were recently contacted by Debbie Sanderson, who had some information on how her grandfather had been the model for the main figure on the Cameronians memorial. We were in turn happy to point her in the direction of Low Parks Museum, which houses the Cameronians collection.

That contact enabled them to flesh out the story of Pipe Major Jimmy Sanderson, and he features as their "Soldier of the Month" on the Cameronians website.

My thanks to Barrie Duncan for permission to post this link:

On another Cameronian Day note, I was informed that the Cameronians flag was flying over Edinburgh Castle yesterday, as it apparently has on ever 14th May since the Regiment disbanded in 1968. It's nice to know a tradition is well maintained.
