The Black Watch regiment has played a part in many major conflicts from its formation to the present day.
The regiment has strong historical associations with Tayside. At the start of the First World War, it mobilised its reserve battalions with men from this area: the 4th (Dundee), 5th (Angus), 6th (Perthshire) and 7th (Fife). The 5th Black Watch was the first Scottish battalion of the Territorial Force (reservists) to arrive in France.
Join us for us for talk on the history of the Black Watch by Major (Retired) Ronnie Proctor MBE FSA Scot, Provost of Angus, Secretary of the Black Watch Regimental Association and Chairman of the Angus Branch.
The talk will last approximately an hour, and there will also be an opportunity to enjoy refreshments and ask any questions.
