Steel & Tartan: 4th Cameron Highlanders Great War (Jan)

Steel & Tartan: 4th Cameron Highlanders Great War


In the summer of 1914 Scotland prepared for war. Thousands of Scottish men of the Territorial Force rushed to their muster stations, eager to take the fight to the enemy. From the Highland market towns, picturesque, unspoiled villages and wild moorland, Scotland’s sons volunteered to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. This is the story of the gallant officers and men of the 4th Battalion, Queens Own Cameron Highlanders. Steel and Tartan charts the adventures of the 4th Camerons from their training in Bedford with the Highland Division through the autumn and winter of 1914 to their eventual break-up in March 1916 at the hands of the British Army administrators. Using previously unpublished diaries, letters and memoirs together with original photographs and newspaper accounts, Patrick Watt tells the story of the Battalion and of the men of the 4th Camerons themselves, those ‘Saturday night soldiers’, who went so eagerly to war in August 1914.
