The War Dead of the Black Watch

During the war the Black Watch had 12 infantry battalions deployed in theatres of war. These comprised of 2 regular battalions, 4 territorial first line battalions and 3 Service battalions. Added to these was a Labour battalion, operating in France between June, 1916 and April, 1917, when it was then absorbed into the Labour Corps. Two battalions were made up from adopting yeomanry regiments. The Fife & Forfar Yeomanry in October, 1916, then the Scottish Horse in January, 1917.
