My father, Neil, joined up at the age of 23 in 1913.

I joined up at the age of 23 in 1965.

How's that for a generation gap?

I joined the 8th Battalion in 1960 and served for 4 years and 9 months.

I then joined the 1st Battalion in 1965 and served for 22 years and 3 months.

This was a total service of 27 years with the Argylls.
