During my time in the Royal Navy, I spent a long time in Scotland serving onboard HMS Kedleston as part of the 4th MCM, which was also our Fishery Protection Squadron, which sailed out of our Stone Frigate at HMS Lochinvar.
HMS Lochinvar, itself was in South Queensferry and many a Saturday, I and other shipmates would bus into Edinburgh and do our damned best to have a drink in every pub on Rose Street. Never managed it, although I did get almost to the end once, when I tried drinking just half pints in each pub.
So I love Scotland and the people and one day, I hope perhaps to return and have a few beers with the Scots lads from Britain First, who are doing their damned best to ensure that Scotland votes NO to the breakup of Our Union, should there be a referendum on the subject.
The Britain First team were gaining signatures in support of the EU referendum campaign.
Edinburgh coordinator Mike Coyle reported:
“We decided last minute to run the stall and it was a success. We received a number of signatures, handed out a few sovereignty magazines and raised local interest in Britain First.
This was the first street activity from Edinburgh branch, the first of many!A special thanks also to an old hand supporter who carried himself professionally.”
