WW1 9th Battalion ( Highlanders ) The Royal Scots - Standing Orders (or how to wear your sporran!) + small photo of Royal Scots Officer
A small WW1 hard bound red pocket sized book with gilt lettering and Royal Scots badge to front, 66 pages, in total. Some staining and fading marks to front cover but internally a good clean copy. It has been annotated in ink in the front pages as the property of W. F. Radford, 2090, E Company, No 3 Section as his address as 2 James Place. Leith. His Rifle number has also been noted as No 504. It came with a few loose items included in its pages including a WW1 era small photo of an officer of the Royal Scots (unattributed and badly creased) and a patriotic paper bookmark with crossed union flag and Royal Navy flag.
Some of the instructions in the book are dated 1913 so this is most probably pre War Territorial issue, also suggests he served in the ranks before being commissioned in WW1.
A quick google throws up
Which shows a Captain William Frederick George Radford as having served with the Royal Scots (Lothian) Regiment during WW1. Worthy of further research.

D-Day 6th June 1944 - BBC DVD - NORMANDY D-Day 6.6.44 (2004) Regions 2 + 4 PAL UK - A well produced BBC documentary with interviews with D-Day veterans from both sides
Watched once, in case of issue. 118 minutes running time, a well produced drama/ biographical documentary as one would expect from the BBC. I guess the most surprising statistic for me was the 20,000 French people who died that day, a casualty statistic which was greater than the Allied and German fatalities combined. All too often they are forgotten in our celebrations of D-Day. In good condition.
Classified as suitable for persons aged 15 and over. Contains scenes of blood and violence.
