On what day did this 'letter to the editor' appear in the Glasgow
Herald? I think it was in the first week of september this year.

Dear Sir




Sir Sean Connery is one of Scotland?s greatest ambassadors and most
influential opinion formers.   It was therefore no surprise to see
that Sir Sean?s endorsement of Black Watch was headline news in last
Friday?s Herald (?breathtaking? said Sir Sean of this absolutely
marvellous play which goes to the heart of the matter - of what it
must be like to experience war in a hot and hostile country, to fight
without proper equipment and to lose comrades ? knowing all the while
that back home, General Mike Jackson and the Scottish Colonels had
decided to abolish your regiment in favour of the 3rd Battalion The
Royal Regiment of Scotland ? genius! ).


More?s the pity then that last autumn, when 155,000 Scots signed a
Petition to Parliament to Save our Scottish Regiments, Sir Sean was
nowhere to be heard or seen ? despite the petition organisers? many
pleadings to come out and support the campaign.


Sir Sean wants Black Watch to be seen by every child in Scotland.  Had
he used his very considerable influence last year, the Black Watch,
the Kings Own Scottish Borders and those other reknowned Scottish
Infantry Regiments could perhaps have continued  - not just as another
Scottish classroom relic, but as a living embodiment to their famous


Yours truly

It doesn't appear in their archive section of their web site. I think
they do not archive the letters to the editor. You may have to visit a
library to view recent back copies.
