Royal Regiment Of Scotland


Councillor John Montgomery was delighted today to have been part of the welcome to North Down of the First battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

Commenting on the event, Cllr Montgomery said:

“It was an exceptional event in the life of Holywood to see the Regiment march through it’s streets. The welcome was as warm as the weather, with crowds lining the streets cheering as the troops passed by, perhaps it was the children from local schools where the greatest excitement lay. They were so excited to witness such a spectacle cheering and jumping for joy, perhaps even a little mesmerised by what was unfolding in front of their eyes.”

Commenting further, the UKIP Cllr for North Down Said:

“I do hope the regiment enjoy their stay with us, we in North Down have so much to offer the soldiers and their families especially friendship. I also wish they remain safe wherever they are deployed in this uncertain world.”
