Cameronians (Scottish Rifles).
This web site has been set up to display selections of pictures taken over the years of my late fathers service with the Cameronians Regiment.
My father James Torrance served from 1959 till 1965. The pages show selections of pictures from Kenya, West Germany and Scotland.
Some of the pictures are shown on other sites of the Regiments and friends, a link is given to allow yourself to follow on from this site.
As time has went on I've added other pages of Cameronian and other pieces which will bring interest to those browsing.
Please enjoy browsing and thanks, Douglas.

Message from Raymond Kelly,
Can anyone help, I am trying to get in touch with any men of the 1st. Battalion Cameronians who served in Malaya, for a meeting to talk over old times with the regiment.
Raymond has created a website of pictures from the Malaya years, mainly thanks to the photograph collection of Ian Scott.
