1 Tyneside Scottish Branch Royal Artillery Association has been a busy year for the Tyneside Scottish Branch Royal Artillery Association, particularly with the First World War One Centenary and the 70 th Anniversary of D-Day. Branch Social Evening March began with a social evening where Chairman Bernie Cowen presented Lt. Col. Ian Vere Nicoll with a cheque for 250 raised by the Branch from a token scheme with ASDA Supermarkets. Presentation cheque to Lt.Col.Vere Nicoll Normandy Commemoration and Battlefield Tour As part of the of the commemorations of the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of Normandy the villagers of Ducy Ste Marguerite invited the Tyneside Scottish Branch to share in their celebrations. In June 1944 the 1 st Battalion Tyneside Scottish (Black Watch) established their Headquarters in Ducy, and the people of the village never forget the men who liberated them. To remember those lost in the Normandy Campaign the villagers organised a ceremony to place a Roll of Honour in their church. Supported by two Detachments of Northumbria Army Cadet Force, nearly 50 people deployed to Normandy at the end of July The commemoration began with a lunch at a local cider farm. In attendance was Brian Stewart, a Normandy Veteran from the Tyneside Scottish, together with his son Rory Stewart MP, Chairman of the Defence Select Committee.

2 Tyneside Scottish Branch RAA & Northumbria ACF with Normandy Veteran Brian Stewart and Rory Stewart MP After a fine lunch, the Branch, the supporting ACF Detachments, and French veterans carrying their standards paraded to the Tyneside Scottish Memorial at the edge of the village. Joined by the villagers, a service and wreath laying (conducted in French and English) was held. Tyneside Scottish Memorial Commemoration Following the wreath laying, the parade marched through the village to the church where a dedication was held and the Roll of Honour placed. Duty done it was time to renew the friendship between the Branch and the people of Ducy St Marguerite. A request by the villagers that members would not leave until the beer barrel was empty was duly complied with. The Branch then led a three day battlefield tour for the Northumbria ACF cadets. The first day focused on the events in the American Sector on 6 th June The tour started at the Airborne Museum in Ste Mere Eglise, before moving to Omaha Beach American Cemetery. The day ended on Omha Beach.

3 Branch members Omaha Beach The second day concentrated on the British Sector on D-Day. The first stop was Pegasus Bridge with its fine visitors centre recalling the capture of the bridges over the River Orne and Canal. Behind the Branch Piper, the members and cadets marched across Pegasus Bridge as Piper Bill Mallin had in June Next on the agenda was the Merville Battery, then Juno Beach for lunch and a visit to the visitors centre. In the evening a Branch Dinner was held in a restaurant in Port en Besin, the base location for the visit. A fine evening ended with a march back to barracks behind the piper playing Black Bear, much to the delight of the American tourists in the hotel, though the local Gendarmarie were less enthused. Base location Port En Besin The last day started at the 50th (Northumberland) Division Artillery Memorial at Ver Sur Mere. Following a brief on the Royal Artillery Run In Shoot on D-Day, a wreath was laid at the Royal Artillery Memorial that commemorates the Gunners of the Division.

The Tyneside Scottish arrived with the 49 th (West Riding) Division on 12 th June Retracing the steps of those that came ashore that day, a march off the beach behind a piper was conducted. Tyneside Scottish march off Gold Beach. By 1 st July 1944, the Tyneside Scottish had moved inland and were dug in around the small village of Rauray. It was here the Battalion blocked a German counter attack and so many men lost their lives. A tour of the battlefield was concluded with an act of remembrance at the 49 th Division Memorial.

5 Commemoration of the start of World War One The Branch paraded at North Shields with serving, cadet and veteran organisations to commemorate the start of World War One on Sunday 3 rd August. TS Branch and other veterans North Shields WW1 parade Tyneside Scottish Formation Parade and Church Service The origins of the Tyneside Scottish lie with Kitchener s Pals Battalions and the Call to Arms in To commemorate the formation of the Tyneside Scottish, the Branch worked with Northumbria ACF and St Cuthbert Church, Bedlington, Northumberland to organise a parade and church service. The event commenced with a march down Front Street Bedlington to St Cuthbert s Church.

Beamish WW1 Recruiting Experience To assist Northumbria ACF on OP REFLECT (British Army WW1 Commemoration) the Branch organised a World War 1 recruiting experience at Beamish Open Air Museum to give the cadets an appreciation of the social and economic conditions in Using actors and the locations in Beamish Museum, the cadets met local characters, miners, even a white feather girl, to understand the reasons why so men rushed to the colours in Everyone started in civilian tops, as civilians, before proceeding to the Recruiting Office ran by the Branch, where cadets signed up and accepted the Kings Shilling. Now as new soldiers, the cadets changed in to uniform and paraded through Beamish Town. Other Activities The Centenary of the First World War has seen the Branch active in many activities. The Branch Standard was paraded on the unveiling of an East Coast locomotive named for the Fallen remembering Regiments with links to the East Coast Main Line. The Branch staged a World War 1 exhibition at Woodhorn Museum, Ashington, Northumberland. Members assisted Northumbria ACF in a Local Hero s competition where cadets researched a local soldier and delivered a presentation on their man. This support helped the Northumbria ACF secure 1 st and 2 nd place in the Brigade completion. Other events included supporting remembrance events, annual dinner, St Andrew s day commemoration and a Christmas Social.As ever, the Tyneside Scottish Branch is indebted to the support they receive from 204 (Tyneside Scottish) Battery and there has been the opportunity to share in joint social and other events for the year.
