THIS week the Cumbernauld Branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland celebrated their organisation's 90th Anniversary, and Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and East Kirkintilloch MP, Gregg McClymont was invited along to the event.
 
The Anniversary Party, which took place earlier this week, was themed around the 1920s' and  was to celebrate the work of the Royal British Legion Scotland's work with present and former Armed Forces personnel.
 
The event led local MP, Gregg McClymont to show his support for a Military Covenant but to also say that the Prime Minister should keep his promise to make care for the Armed Forces a legal obligation.
 
Commenting on his Branches celebrations, Cumbernauld Branch Secretary, Jim Keyes said: "It was a great night, with some of the guests being as old as the legion itself, whilst some were only just old enough to have a legal drink! It was really was fabulous to have such a wide age range come together to celebrate to Royal British Legion Scotland's 90th Anniversary. Long may it continue."

Commenting, Gregg McClymont MP added: "I was delighted to have been invited to speak at the celebration. For the part ninety years, the Royal British Legion Scotland has been Scotland's primary charity providing help and welfare to the serving and ex- Service community, and their families. 

“The hard work of the Royal British Legion Scotland has been especially noteworthy in the recent campaign to have the Military Covenant enshrined in law. 

“I hope that members such as those I have had the good fortune to meet are rewarded for this hard work, and that the Prime Minister keeps his promise to make the duty of care owed to the Armed Forces a legal obligation."
