Saw this on the museum's rather fine FB page. Makes a visit even more necessary.

I get their newsletter, I might have seen it mentioned there but thought worth sharing anyway.  Might have another trip up - I have a Historic Scotland season ticket.

 

I donated some transcriptions of letters from my Great Grandfather from Crimea and India to the museum (he was in the 72nd).  I found them in the newspaper archive so tidied up the transcriptions.  Most interesting bit was that in his last year serving in India, he virtually ran a printing business for the regiment (doing work for other regiments and the civil service) and was excused all military duties, just had to turn up for church parade.
