The ABA 2018 Annual Muster in Dunfermline was enjoyed by members and their guests on a fresh but dry spring day. The service in the Abbey was memorable in so many ways with an excellent sermon preached by the Reverend Bob Whitman. As always the music and choral singing on these occasions was superb. A parade followed in the nearby Pittencrieff Park and was led by the Tullis Russell Brass Band and the ABA National & Branch Standards. The salute was taken by the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Fife, Mrs Fiona Robertson. Lunch was taken in the Glen Pavilion with background music played by the Tullis Russell Brass Band. The piper also played two sets during lunch. 

The Perth & District Gathering held on Saturday 12th May was very well attended by members including those who had  travelled from other branches. It was by all accounts a most successful and enjoyable event.

On Thursday 2nd August over seventy members and guests from around the branches enjoyed a delicious supper in the Royal Scots Club before moving to Edinburgh Castle to watch a performance of the Royal Military Edinburgh Tattoo. It was a thoroughly good evening which was much enjoyed by those who were able to be present.
