Recommended Posts

The 1st Battalion Black Watch are listed in the 1911 Irish census.

Kindly pointed out by a chap on the Black Watch forum.

Black Watch Census 1911 Limerick Barrack Hill

19.40 to 19.50 lists members of the Black Watch and some other support staff.

Interesting to see the hospital returns for what afflicted soldiers in peacetime. I'd expected to see a few accidents re weaponry, fractures etc but the majority appear to be diseased (quite a few STDs at that).

Very interesting to see just how high a percentage of the Black Watch personnel were Scottish-born. (I'd have expected to see the occasional English-born officer, but it is a small sample size and unrepresentative given that the census returns cover military hospital, some officers' quarters and certain support staff lodgings).

Thanks for sharing this.
