Fundraisers visit Erskine veterans

11 Apr 2011

A living history group preparing for a charity walk have visited ex-Service men and women cared for by veterans’ charity Erskine.

The Gordon Highlanders 1914-18 wore First World War uniform and treated the veterans in Bishopton to a marching display.

The group hopes to raise £10,000 for Erksine during a 65-mile march from Buckie to Aviemore in June to mark the 95th anniversary of the charity and the Battle of the Somme.

A group spokesman said the visit highlighted Erksine’s “wonderful work”.
