"The Black Watch Regiment in the Great War: Rediscovered Histories from the Regimental Family

Edited by Fraser Brown and Derek J Patrick


During the First World War, The Black Watch provided 23 battalions as part of the British forces committed to that conflict. Tens of thousands of Black Watch soldiers served in Europe and the Middle East – over 8,000 died. The Black Watch Regiment was awarded 69 battle honours and four Black Watch men received the Victoria Cross. The Black Watch Regiment and the Great War is a book written by those who have worn the Red Hackle, descendants of The Black Watch soldiers of 1914-18, and those connected to the regiment.


Edited by Fraser Brown and Derek J Patrick, with a Foreword by Lieutenant-General Sir Alistair Irwin, Former Adjutant-General to the Forces in the UK, the book provides the reader with the lesser-known Great War histories of this famous Scottish regiment – from the ‘Black Watch Men from Latin America’ to ‘Combatant Ministers and Sons of the Manse’ and many more.


Publisher: Tippermuir Books Limited

ISBN 978-1-913836-01-6 (paperback)"


The book comes out mid November, although the blurb is a bit lacking in detail with regards as to where the information for the book is sourced from.
