In 1914, the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry Regiment was a cavalry regiment with its headquarters in Kirkcaldy and squadrons based in Dunfermline, Cupar, Dundee and Forfar. The regiment was sent to Gallipoli in September 1915, and fought there as a dismounted cavalry formation and served until the final disembarkation, being one of the last units to leave. In just two months the regiment lost three quarters of its strength to casualties and disease. The survivors were sent to Egypt where, in 1917, they formed the cadre of an infantry battalion, the 14th Battalion Royal Highlanders; better known as the famous Black Watch. The 14th Battalion formed part of the 74th (Yeomanry) Division commanded by Major General Eric Girdwood. In Egypt and Palestine, the 14th Battalion fought with distinction against the Turkish forces at the Battle of Sheria in November 1917, and played a vital role in the events leading up to the fall of Jerusalem. Following the German offensive on the Western Front in March 1918, the 14th Battalion was rushed to France and saw action in Picardy during the closing stages of the war. On the Somme, the battalion suffered heavily in the fighting around Moislains in September 1918. This classic account, based on wartime diaries, written by Major D. D. Ogilvie, details the absorbing story of how the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry evolved over the course of the war, and presents a rare primary source record of a hard fighting battalion that saw action on three fronts.

About the Author:

D. D. Ogilvie was a distinguished soldier, who saw action in many fields of combat. As a Major in what eventually became the 14th (Fife and Forfar Yeomanry) Battalion, The Royal Highlanders, Ogilvie was present in diverse theatres of war such as Gallipoli and Jerusalem. He tirelessly served and followed the call of the Empire, and held in great esteem the band of soldiers that he found himself a part of. With a career spanning decades, and his tale following the 14th Battalion from the very beginning to the end of the Great War, Major D. D. Ogilvie was a soldier through and through who never forgot his fallen comrades and, indeed, it is to them that his book is dedicated.
