Hello Chaps,

I have been contacted by Merseyside Lord Lieutenancy to see if any representatives of the descendants of the 74th Foot could attend the unveiling of a new memorial on the Wirral (near Liverpool) to commemorate the gallantry of the troops in the sinking of HMS Birkenhead off Capetown South Africa in 1852. As you will all know this is a famous moment recalled in the regimental histories of the HLI and the RHF, and I would imagine still in the 2 Scots. It would be great if we could muster a few members to attend with our standards for the unveiling and the following civic reception. Let me know what you think and I will post more details.

Date: Wednesday 5th March 2014 at 11am.

Yours aye,

Jim.
