It is with deep regret that we acknowledge the passing of James ‘Jim’ Cassie (3rd from the right) on 13 Dec 2019 following a recent illness. Jim was a great Highlander and strong supporter of The Regiment and all its associations. He was also a consistent supporter of and donor to the 15th Battalion CEF Memorial Project from the very first memorial at The Crow’s Nest in 2010 to the tenth and most recent memorial at Ecurie in 2018. Despite his advanced age and medical condition, Jim travelled to France and Belgium to attend the majority of the memorial dedications. In the language of the Great War trenches, Jim ‘has gone West’ and he will be greatly missed – ‘We Will Remember’ him.
