HMS Grimsby at Kyle of Lochalsh

On 21 April Mrs Janet Bowen travelled to the Kyle of Lochalsh to accept an invitation to dinner on HMS Grimsby.

Mrs Bowen was received by the captain, Lt Cmdr Luxford and provided with a briefing on the ship's work.

This occasion gave an opportunity to meet with representatives of the local community and the Royal Navy to begin planning for the commemoration of the sinking of HMY Iolaire on 31 January 2018. This disaster could scarcely be more tragic. Survivors of the Great War, travelling back to Lewis for Hogmanay, left the train at Kyle and boarded the Iolaire for Stornaway, sinking just outside the harbour with 205 lives lost.

Cadet Pipes and Drums Beat Retreat at Dingwall

On Friday 6 April Mrs Janet Bowen, Lord-Lieutenant for Ross and Cromarty, attended Dingwall in order to take the salute on the occasion of the Cadet Pipes and Drums Beating Retreat.

The event is held annually and is the culmination of a week of specialist training for cadets of all three services, and is in effect the dress rehearsal for an equivalent event at Edinburgh Castle.

This years parade, despite the weather, was of the first order and in order to do it justice an audio visual record would be required. However, hopefully the attached photographs will give some impression.
