Comment posted Scottish Government support for Arctic Convoy medal – but why not award a Scottish medal? by Iain McCallum.

Absolutely scandalous. And the longer it goes on the louder the condemnation should be. These few (and getting fewer) brave (mad??) men that have been recognised by Russia (the enemy?) and totally ignored by succesive governemtns of this once Great Britainand the efforts they gave within living memory should bring endless shame on this lot espaecuially who i believe promised to present them with medals.

  • Campbeltown Picture House planning for spectacular return
    I look forward to it reopening, but I also fear that when things like the Wee Pictures close, they never recover. People get out of the habit of going, and no matter what is offered, folk will be doing something else. I heard that when they showed the closing ceremony live there was less than a dozen people in to watch
  • Two major winners last weekend: Mach 1 Stages Rally and Kintyre community
    but the astonishing number is that 90 volunteers signed on for marshalling – 80% of whom were local people…….as an exile from Campbeltown I would say that knowing the folk, there is no surprise that so many local people volunteered to help this amazing event run smoothly. That is what they do. You only have to look at the success of the likes of the MoK10k and other events in a place that is as far away from anywhere that you can get to see what the locals will do. And that’s not counting the various fundraising events run every week. Well done to all concerned
  • ‘Mach 1 Stages’ – the inaugural Kintyre car rally is GO for 5th & 6th July
    Outstanding effort for getting something like this to South Kintyre. Lets hope, like the 10K that it is the start of something big.
  • MOKRUN 2014 this Sunday with Expo 2014 on Saturday
    Brilliant advert for the Toon – again. Well done to the organisers – again. And to everybody in the Wee Toon who make this the best 10K in the country. Working, so can’t make it. Gutted
  • Cinema operator appointed to Campbeltown Picture House
    My thoughts exactly when I saw Mr Arthur had been appointed. I don’t doubt his credentials, but there are a finite amount of people with a finite amount of disposable income in the Kintyre area. The good folks in the Wee Toon and surrounding areas already put their hands in their pockets disproportionally for charities and good causes each and every week. They will still only use the Pictures as a treat and watch a film once, no matter how new and good that film is. I still believe that the locals will continue to support the Wee Pictures, because they have fought so hard to keep it, but don’t let the management get too far ahead of themselves

  2. I read this article with interest. Seems the Scottish Government are doing more for our Veterans than the UK Parliament(London)MoD put together.
    The National Defence Medal Campaign has beeen going on for a number of years now http://nationaldefencemedal.webs.com
    a National Defence Medal for ‘All’ in recognition of Service to Crown & Country Veterans & families of those who did serve proudly from WWI through WWII all conflicts there after, Korea ‘Cold War’ service, include National Service, onwards until present day.
    Very best of luck with the ACM Campaign.
