The Formation of The Transvaal Scottish Regimental Association
At the end of World War II, each of the three battalions had their own Association. In January 1950, Major Angus McLaren wrote in the 1st Bn newsletter, No 3. that: ” a strong combined association should carry a lot more weight in the future and be of greater assistance to the Regiment as a whole.” This amalgamation took place on 24th March 1950 with sixty-six members in attendance. Since that date, membership has grown significantly with membership world-wide.
Serving and former members of the regiment are eligible for membership of the Transvaal Scottish Regimental Association. Members who have not served with the Regiment, but are interested in the well-being and principles of the TSRA are welcome to apply for associate membership.
These virtual pages offer information regarding the objectives of the TSRA, current and past Events info and galleries and the ever popular publication of The Jock Column. The Jock Shop will also soon be available online.
Members meet from 16:30 (announcements at 18h15) at “The View”, Ridge Road, Parktown on the first Monday of each month unless it is a public holiday. The meeting is then postponed to the following Monday.
The occasion is for members to maintain friendships and promote esprit de corps.
Dress code: – Collar and tie.
Remember “Friday is Regimental Tie day”
