Great War Dundee
This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
Following the Battle of Loos the 4th Black Watch (Dundee’s Own), was amalgamated with the 5th Angus Battalion of the Black Watch. Promoted to Sergeant, Charlie led a group of men on a night trench raid at La Basse. Requiring stealth and bravery, trench raids often involved vicious hand-to-hand combat. Charlie’s men had a good night, killing 5 Germans without any losses of their own.
