Jim Crichton I was watching the news this evening June 3rd, 2005 and very surprised to hear about the reunion of the Queen's Own Rifles. It has also been mentioned promenently in the last two issues of the Powderhorn newsletter.

And also to meet Rosanne Pickford Way (I hope spelling is correct) my Grade 1 teacher from Germany, where we attended school on base in H-huts. It is Monday morning and time to reflect on the 2005 QOR of C Reunion. A great show and you all should feel proud for having done such a wonderful job. I would have enjoyed the opportunity of attending and surprised that neighbours of mine who were Queen's Own Rifles and know that I served with this regiment could not have taken the time to let me know. We try to keep everyone informed of what is happening within the regimental family.

We know we must make the best of the here and now and we still dont know the why, or the when, or the how.

Our regiment will keep on marching on and we will note our heroes who have gone.

I love to come onto the site , but I do wonder at the army today, and hope that most of them are just as much fun as they were in the war days, just wish I was 18 and not 80, so that I could find out, bye Heather French Whaz up fellas, C'est Mick....
