Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas to all our members, friends and visitors!

We thank you for your continued interest in the campaign and helping keep alive the memory of all those who served, whether they came home or still lie in the Balkans.

I don’t have an original festive image this year so, instead, I have chosen this colourful German postcard which is one of my favourite acquisitions during 2019. It shows German and Bulgarian soldiers shopping at the market in Skopje (Uskub).

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and soon after became editor of the Society's journal - 'The New Mosquito' - a role he held until 2008. He then became the Society's web editor, a role he seems unable to shake off. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915 to 1917, mainly in the Struma valley. Opinions expressed in these posts are his and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Society.
