Good Evening All

Could anybody tell me where the actions that the15th Battalion Royal Scots (1st Edinburgh) were involved in on the 1st July 1916. I believe they were also known as the Manchester Scottish and the Cranstons? Part of K3 101 Brigade 34th Division. Correct me if I'm wrong. I cannot find the war diary for this battalion.   

Kind Regards

Andy

The so-called Manchester Scottish made up a contingent (about Company size) during the formation of 15th Battalion RS.

The Battalion itself was not known as such.

In the same brigade were the 11th Suffolks and the 16th Royal Scots. Their role was to follow on through the two lead Battalions, the 10th Lincolns and the 15th Royal Scots respectively. There is a website dedicated to the 11th Suffolks which has a bit more on the day here http://www.curme.co.uk/p.htm and here http://www.curme.co.uk/p2.htm

Should it help the Official War History of the Lincolnshire Regiment is available to read \ download from Archive org https://archive.org/details/TheHistoryOfTheLincolnshireRegiment1914-1918

Cheers,
Peter
