    Book details

The Black Watch Regimental Archives contain many thousands of photographs graphically illustrating the history of this famous Highland regiment since the first images were recorded some 150 years ago. Over two hundred of these pictures have been selected for this volume to represent different aspects of regimental life both home and abroad, in peace and at war. From the days when the infantry still practised forming squares to the hand over of Hong Kong, the last significant remnant of the Empire, in 1997, this collection provides a fascinating insight into the activities of the Regiment. Naturally, many of the Regiment's great heroes and characters appear in these pictures but so do many other famous people, members of the royal family, Presidents of the United States of America and other heads of state. The collection of photographs also covers the Territorial battalions of the Black Watch from their early days as Rifle Volunteers through the two World Wars during which they won such renown for the Regiment.

    An excellent addition to any military library,with photographs & informative brief texts.It covers the periods from the Crimea War up to 1999,with hundreds of photographs, many putting meat on the bones in naming the individual represnted.This book gives an in sight not only into the military history but also the social changes. It is state in the foreward that the Regimental archives hold many thousands of other photographs,if so bring on book two as soon as possible. Ron Withers.
