Desperate attempts by General Jackson and Sir Alistair Irwin to try and suppress the real feeling amongst soldiers of the Scottish Regiments have been blown apart. Below is typical of the comments our campaign has heard from serving soldiers, their families and veterans.  The recent comments by Col. James Cowan of The Black Watch regiment are totally at odds with all of his previous sentiments in which he has always expressed his total dedication for his regiment - above his own personal loss in career terms.  It would appear that he has been sat on by General Jackson and Sir Alistair Irwin - forced to toe the party line or face dire career consequences. 

These attempts to cover up free speech only serve to strengthen soldiers, veterans and campaigners resolve.
