Maj. R. J. 'Bob' Aitken
It is with very great sadness that we must inform you that Maj. R. J. 'Bob' Aitken passed away over the weekend. Bob was a great servant and stalwart of Scottish shooting, representing Scotland 26 times in the National and 21 times in the Mackinnon (including 6 times as Captain of each). He also toured twice with Great Britain, captaining the team to New Zealand in 2003. His service to our sport was widely recognized, so much so that he was elected a Vice-President of the NRA. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

The Funeral service will be at Warriston Crematorium, Lorimer Chapel,Edinburgh on Saturday 29th October at 11.00am to which all are welcome.

Family flowers only please.

Collection for Poppy Scotland.

He will be greatly missed.

Best regards, Tim Kidner
