Story

In august 2018 Our Team who are known as Beyond The Battlefield Memorial Walkers, walked from Edinburgh Castle to Carrickfergus Castle N Ireland. Due to popular demand we have organised a walk for our Veterans from Edinburgh Castle to Newtownards N Ireland in August 2019. We hope to lay a wreath for the 3 young Scottish Soldiers who where Brutally murdered. All monies raised go directly to Beyond The Battlefield Charity who use it to give help to our veterans and their families  in need. Volunteers are welcome to join us for the walk. https://beyondthebattlefield.org/ The walk is approx 130 Miles and will be completed over 3 days. Starting 0001 hrs Friday  23rd August 2019 and hopefully finish in Newtownards approx 1430pm Monday 26th August 2019. THE WALK WAS TERMINATED AT THE VILLAGE OF PRIESTLAND SHORT OF GALSTON DUE TO INJURIES. 2 TEAM MEMBERS WENT ON TO DO THE LAST 10 MILES INTO NEWTOWNARDS TO FINISH WITH THE WREATH LAYING WHICH WAS PRE PLANNED AND WE DID NOT WISH TO LET EVERYONE DOWN. THE TEAM WAS NOT SUPPORTED BY ANY VETERAN GROUPS BUT WAS GREATLY APPRECIATED BY THE PEOPLE FROM NEWTOWNARDS AND THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION (NEWTOWNARDS BRANCH) 3 OF THE TEAM WENT THE NEXT DAY TO LAY A WREATH TO FALLEN COMRADES AT NARROW WATER ON TUESDAY 27TH. THAT ENDED OUR TIME IN N IRELAND. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED US. NEXT YEARS WALK WILL BE A RELAY SO WE ARE LOOKING FOR 6 VOLUNTEERS.
