The Regimental Association Committee

President - Colonel Hugo Grant

Hugo was elected to the Presidency of the Regimental Association in May 2019, having previously been CO of Tayforth UOTC.

Honorary Treasurer - Colonel Chris Wilman

Chris retired from the Army after 36 years’ service: from commissioning in 1980 in to the Corps of Royal Engineers, he graduated in Civil Engineering, before obtaining his Masters Degree in Defence Technology, both at the Royal Military College of Science at Shrivenham. He has served around the world, with tours in the UK, Germany, Belize and Washington DC. He took part in the warfighting part of both Gulf Wars, and peace-keeping in Bosnia.

He was appointed CO Tayforth UOTC in 2004, serving until 2006.  Cadets from the time will remember the emphasis on competition and live fire shooting, and it was not long before the cabinets at RHQ were full of silver trophies, as well as a long overdue win in Ex NORTHERN LIGHTS.

Chris joined the Regimental Association on leaving command, and has filled all the appointments (at one stage doing three simultaneously!).  Having retired, he has taken ownership of a Birchwood 37TS Supersport Motor Cruiser as his retirement project, and a four year old rescue Springer Spaniel!  Mandy (his wife) is still putting up with him - much more of an achievement now he is always at home and meddling in things!

Honorary Secretary - Mr David Mason

David was a Cadet in A Squadron from 2007-2011 whilst studying at St Andrews for an MA in History, becoming SJUO in his final year.  After graduating he joined Aldi as an Area Manager before recently making a move from selling tins of beans to selling fluffy pillows for IKEA in 2017.

He was elected as Honorary Secretary at the May 2014 AGM and is responsible for the Association's administration and communications.

He is currently based in Bristol, and in his spare time enjoys playing rugby and sampling all the alcoholic and foodie delights he can!

Membership Secretary - Mr Martin Currie

Martin studied History and Politics at the University of Stirling before being politely asked to leave the politics department for arguing too much. He was a member of Charlie Company from 2007-2012 and enjoyed annual camps to Norway and Northern Ireland as well as adventure training in the Canary Islands and the South of France.

After leaving Tayforth he continued his Territorial career as an Armourer within the REME firstly as a member of 32 Signal regiments LAD and now as a member of 106 Bn REME's BHQ based in East Kilbride.

Martin is currently attending Tulliallan Scottish Police College.

The posit of Social Secretary is currently vacant.  At the 2019 AGM, the Committee were given the power to appoint any interested parties throughout the year.
