    Just voted for you Victoria and your volume 2 of the famous Regiment of the Black Watch ; 1899 -2006 . An excellent compilation of facts of the history of the Regiment and yes , even including the names of Lieut Patrick Wright Anderson , 8th Black Watch & 10th Black Watch and his cousin , Acting Capt James Bell Salmond , 7th Black Watch in WW1 , both from Arbroath . A good publication for the future historians too as well as regimental historians as the facts are well recorded in this publication . The book can be bought of course at the Black Watch Museum in Perth etc

    Best wishes Patrick W Anderson

    I have put your voting link onto a Facebook Group called 'Proud to have served' etc. There are members there that don't use this Forum.

    Published by Tuckwell press 1999.
    Deals with political and economic issues rather than military but lots of interesting facts.
    Front cover shows 1st Bn Edinburgh in March 1913 just before leaving for Aldershot.
    PM Thomas Clark on the left.

    First edition Quetta 1923, puplished by the London Photo Co Lahore.
    An unrecorded work of 35 photo's on 18 leaves. In the original printed wrappers with string ties, includes a portrait of Lt/Col S.H.Eden C.O.
    The 1st Bn moved from Allahabad to Quetta in 1922. Loosely inserted postcard, sent by a member of the battalion to his father, the writer apologises for not sending a letter, since he has been"warned for a flying patrol". Motor lorries waiting now I have only 30 mins to turn out am going to Landi Kotal pass.
    PC below, have also included a photocopy of Landi Kotal pass in the 1920s home to the Khyber Rifles.

    Finally got your hands on one of the "Dinna Forget" books Ron?

    I dream the 5th Bn one will turn up somewhere one day.

    The 4th, 6th and 7th all seem to exist anyway.
