Jeanette Trumeau My grandfather's unit served next to an Irish unit that wore kilts in all weather. He said they were the toughest soldiers he knew during that war.
Helen A. Johns Linker Was it the "Scots Greys " that were called the "Ladies From Hell"? I believe a German gave them the moniker?
Alan Fraser My uncle Reynold Fraser (1892-1971) is first on right behind the sergeant major. He was wounded in France in June 1915, and sent back to England to recover. He then spent time in Norfolk building invasion defences before being sent back to France to serve with an anti-aircraft searchlight company.
