FOREWORD 

GEORGE HERIOT'S HOSPITAL in the nearly 
three hundred years that have passed since its 
foundation stone was laid in 1628 has stood through 
many wars — civil wars, in which fierce battles were fought 
almost within sight of its walls, and greater wars among 
the nations. 

In 1628 the Thirty-years' War had already dragged 
one-third of its weary length, although Scotland had not 
much concern in it except that hundreds of her young men 
fought in its battles as " Soldiers of Fortune." Before 
many years had passed, however, indeed before the 
building of George Heriot's " Wark " was completed, our 
native land was destined to make very close acquaintance 
with war and its terrible realities. 

In 1650 Cromwell, having defeated the Scots under 
Leslie at Dunbar, marched on to Edinburgh and occupied 
the city. Finding the " Wark " a suitable building for the 
purpose he made it a hospital for his sick and wounded 
soldiers, and it continued to be used in this capacity till 
1658 by the army which was left in Scotland under 
General Monk. 

It was not therefore till 1659 that the Hospital was 
available for the purpose intended by the Founder, " the 
maintenance, relief, and education of poor fatherless boys, 
freemen's sons of the Burgh of Edinburgh." 

During the latter years of the seventeenth century, during 
the whole of the century that followed, and even on into 
the nineteenth, there were wars on the continent of Europe, 
in which British soldiers were engaged, but the armies sent 
overseas were comparatively small, and there never was 
any menace to the soil of Britain, for was she not — 

" A precious stone set in the silver sea 
Which serves it in the office of a wall, 
Or as a moat defensive to a house, 
Against the envy of less happier lands," 



8 GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

Even during the Napoleonic Wars there was never any real 
danger of invasion, though for a year or two the possibility 
of such a catastrophe hung as a dark shadow over the land. 
Nor was it felt necessary for Britain to send a large 
army to the Continent. Wellington's force in the Peninsula 
numbered only 30,000 men, and even at Waterloo he had 
less than 25,000 British soldiers under his command. 

At the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the 
twentieth century, however, a new set of conditions obtained 
in Europe which completely altered the position of Britain. 
Germany, strengthened and consolidated by three suc- 
cessful wars — in each of which she was the aggressor — 
was building up a huge army, and at the same time was 
challenging Britain's supremacy on the sea. The wisest 
and most far-seeing soldier-statesmen warned the country 
again and again that, if war came, a great army would be 
needed, and they advised universal military training, but 
the nation at large, relying on the " silver streak " and 
on the fleet riding upon it, left that counsel practically 
unheeded. 

When the crash came in August 1914, and Britain felt 
herself bound in honour to go to the help of Belgium and 
France, it was seen that a great army would have to be 
raised, and the call for men was made. Right promptly 
did the youth of the land answer the call of King and 
Country. 

They saw before them the path of honour and of 
duty, and followed it ; and the " Old Boys " of George 
Heriot's School in no way lagged behind. From Canada 
and South America, from South Africa and far-off Australia 
and New Zealand, they came to join their brothers of the 
Home Country in defence of their native land. 

Was this to be wondered at when they had behind 
them the tradition of the Old Hospital, the tradition which 
had its spring in the noble Founder himself, whose motto 
is: "I distribute cheerfullie "? Had they not also the 
later tradition of the School, but twenty -nine years old 
it is true, but already splendid in achievement both in 
education and in the playing fields ? 



ROLL OF HONOUR 9 

The local Territorial Battalions of the Royal Scots, the 
4th and 5th (O.E.R.), the 6th, 7th, and 8th, and the 9th 
(Highlanders) claimed the first attention of the Boys. 
Many of them, indeed, had been for years members of 
these battalions, and to a man had volunteered for service 
abroad. No one who was present will ever forget that 
fateful meeting in the Old Physics Lecture Room, when 
the Football Club almost in a body, with the brothers 
Lamb leading off, joined the 5 th Battalion, which along 
with the 4th and 6th was to suffer so much in the 
unfortunate Gallipoli Campaign. 

The 1st Edinburgh Battalion, the 15th Royal Scots, 
raised in September, attracted a large number of Herioters, 
and the 2nd Edinburgh Battalion, the 16th Royal Scots, 
raised some weeks later, a still greater number. It was in 
affording a home for a few months to the 16th Royal 
Scots, under Colonel Sir George McCrae, that the Old 
Hospital made its second acquaintance with war — a closer 
and more poignant acquaintance, for this time it was 
sheltering under its roof not the soldiers of a hostile army, 
but the men of its own city, many of them its own dear 
lads, who doubtless felt a strange elation in being billeted 
in the rooms they knew so well or performing their military 
drill in the playground where a few years before they 
had played together as boys. These two battalions went 
together to France, and in the Somme Valley on 1st July 
1916 they sustained terrible losses, many " Old Boys " being 
among the number of the fallen. 

By December 1914 the names of over 630 Former Pupils 
known to be serving were given in The Herioter, and a few 
months later the number had increased to 1000. A com- 
parison of the School records, with the lists of those who 
served and those who fell in the War, brings out some very 
interesting facts. It shows on the one hand how splendid 
was the response made by the boys to their Country's Call, 
and on the other how terrible the calamity which has 
befallen us in the loss of so many young men, the cream 
of the School in intellectual ability, cut off in the vigour 
and bloom of youth. Take Class VI. Senior from session 



IO GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

1909-10 to session 1916-17. The lists contain 151 names: 
Of these 141 were serving, and 29 died on service. For 
the last five years the figures are : Total number on Roll, 
89 ; number serving, 88 (one could not because of reasons 
of health ) ; number who died on service, 17. 

Take, again, the lists of the Prefects, the twelve head 
boys chosen each year to represent the Authority of the 
School in playground and playing-fields, and generally 
beyond the School walls : young men all of gifts and graces. 
From 1908, when the Prefect System was introduced, to 
19 1 7 (nine years) there were in all 97 Prefects (some held 
the office two years in succession). Of these, 93 were on 
service, and no fewer than 18 of them fell in action, 
including two Captains of the School — James Bell, Captain 
in 191 5, and Herbert Philip Turnbull, Captain in 191 7. 

Most of those who| obtained honours in the School were 
on service, and the obituary list contains the names of three 
Duxes killed in action — Samuel Stephen Anderson, Dux 
in 1899; Robert Gilroy Hannerman, Joint-Dux in 1912 ; 
and Noel Rogerson, Dux in 191 7. These three Duxes 
were also University-Bursars. In addition, the following 
18, who held University Bursaries, died on service: — 
Dr Andrew Wallace, 1891 ; Dr John W. Frew, 1901 ; 
Robert A. Cunningham, B.Sc, 1906; Rev. H. H. Norton, 
M.A., Alick C. Mackenzie, M.A., B.Sc, and William F. 
Templeton, M.A., 1907; John C. Grierson, M.A., and 
Ian D. Macpherson, B.Sc, 191 1 ; William H. Cameron and 
John H. Howie, 1913 ; John A. Henry, 1914 ; Christopher 
Pratt, John A. Patterson, and John M. Larnach, 191 5 ; 
Gideon A. F. Renwick, David A. Davidson, and Laurence 
S. B. Brown, 1916; and Francis J. Mitchell, 1917. These 
University-Bursars were also Silver Medallists, and the list 
of the fallen includes, in addition, the following nine Silver 
Medallists or Special Prizemen : — William H. Oldham, 
1901 ; George R. M'Gechan, 1905 ; Keith S. Runciman, 
1909 ; Robert W. Potts, 191 2 ; George M. Ewan, 191 3 ; 
William M. Brand, 191 5 ; William A. Wood, 1916; 
William F. M. Vallance, 1916; and Herbert P. Turnbull, 
1917. 



ROLL OF HONOUR II 

Allusion has already been made to the way in which 
Herioters from overseas came to the help of the Mother 
Country. Most of them joined the units raised in the 
colony in which they were settled, but many came home 
and joined the home battalions. 

In all, 225 "Old Boys" from abroad joined up, and of 
these 74, or nearly one-third, made the supreme sacrifice. 
The large proportion is only to be accounted for by the 
fact that almost all of these young men were in the fighting 
battalions. 

It is interesting to take note of the ages of those who 
died on Service. Of the total of 461* — two from the Staff, 
the remainder " Old Boys "—93 were under 20, or had just 
passed their twentieth birthday; 153 more were between 
the ages of 20 and 25 ; 100 between 25 and 30 ; 64 between 
30 and 35 ; and 5 1 above 35 years of age. 

Of this total, 413 fell in action or died of wounds, and it 
may be of interest to recall the various years of the conflict 
and to note in what fields the gallant boys fell. In 1914 
and 1915, 88 gave up their lives — -46 on the Gallipoli 
Peninsula and 42 in France and Flanders, the Battle of 
Loos, 25th and 26th September 191 5, accounting for the 
majority of them. In 1916, 80 were killed in action, most 
of these on the Somme from 1st July onwards. 1917 
was the most fatal year ; 6 fell in Palestine, 1 in the 
Balkans, and 139 on the Western Front, many at the 
Arras battles in April, and many more at Passchendaele 
in the late autumn. In 1918 the number was 99, a good 
proportion of these being killed in the disastrous retreat 
in March and April, and many during the victorious 
advance. 

The number which the School sent to the War, as far as 
is known to us, is 2,657, °f whom about 800 held com- 
missioned rank. Of this total 27 were members of the 
School Staff, and as 7 of the Staff were also Former 
Pupils, the latter numbered 2,637. They were distributed 
among the following branches of service: — Navy, 142; 

* This includes three from the list of those engaged in National or Imperial 
Service. 



12 GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

Royal Air Force, 128; Cavalry, 81 ; Royal Field Artillery, 
182; Royal Garrison Artillery, 147; The Royal Scots, 
538 ; other Scottish and Highland Regiments, 533, includ- 
ing The K.O.S.B. 65, The Black Watch 54, The Highland 
Light Infantry 52, The Seaforths 74, The Gordons 54, The 
Camerons 61, The Argyll and Sutherlands 86, The Scottish 
Rifles 44, The Royal Scots Fusiliers 27, The London 
Scottish 16. 105 served in the Royal Army Medical 
Corps, 167 in the Royal Engineers, 93 in the Royal Army 
Service Corps, 54 in the Machine Gun Corps, 17 in the 
Tank Corps, and 107 in English Infantry Regiments. 
At least 190 belonged to Overseas Battalions. 

In addition, there is a further list containing 29 names of 
those engaged in National or Imperial Service. Of these 
three died on service during the War. 

The cordial thanks of the Editor are due to all who have 
helped to make the volume a worthy record of the part that 
Herioters played in the Great War. He desires to thank 
specially Mr D. M. Clark, Mr J. W. Dickson, Mr J. E. 
Wood, M.A., and Colonel Sir George M'Crae for their kind- 
ness in writing the special articles over their names and the 
first-mentioned also for careful revision of the proofs. 

THE EDITOR. 



Note. — Every care has been taken to make the records of this volume 
correct. If they are not, the chief reason is that the required information has 
not been put at the disposal of the Editor. 

In the list of those who served the final rank only is given. The figures 
after each name indicate the years at School. Of the contractions used to 
indicate regiments, etc., many must be so well known that it seems superfluous 
to give them. A few of the less common ones are given : —

O.C.B. Officers Cadet Battalion. 

T. R. B. Training Reserve Battalion.

CONTRIBUTIONS OF HERIOT CLUBS 
TO THE WAR. 



FORMER PUPILS' CRICKET AND 
FOOTBALL CLUBS. 

The call to arms met with a ready response from the 
members of the Former Pupils' Cricket and Football Clubs, 
and during the war, of course, the activities of both Clubs 
ceased, almost the entire membership being on service. 

In 1914 the combined membership of the Cricket and 
Football Clubs was about 60 (much less than now), and of 
these several played in both sections. So far as can be 
ascertained, 141 players or past players joined H.M. Forces, 
and of these 36 were killed or died of wounds. 

One who plays for a Former Pupils' team inevitably 
earns unusual notice, and a career of a few successful 
seasons, especially at football, will fix attention on a young 
man and secure popularity for him in a way that no 
amount of work or scholarship can do. He becomes a 
kind of School possession. It was natural, then, that the 
Heriot public should hope and believe that their footballers 
and cricketers would bear themselves bravely in the big 
fight. These hopes were nobly fulfilled, but the cost was 
heavy, and it now seems proper to recall the names of our 
fallen who were identified with the F.P. Cricket and 
Football Clubs. 

Many had finished their playing days ; others had only 
begun them. Some were 1st XV. or 1st XI. men, others 
had not attained that distinction, but in going over the 
names one cannot fail to notice that apart from their 
prowess as players, and claiming for them no more honour 
than should be given to non-players who gave up their 
lives, our Heriot cricketers and footballers who have fallen 
might well constitute a band of young men chosen to re- 



14 GEORGE HERIOTS SCHOOL 

present the best that the School produces, and a standard 
to which future Herioters may aspire. 

So many of them played both football and cricket that 
were separate lists made up — a football list and a cricket 
one — several names would appear in both lists. We shall 
just proceed according to age. 

In the early days at old Warriston Arthur H. Moorhead 
was an outstanding figure, being a three-quarter back with 
unusual pace as well as a good all-round cricketer. Indeed, 
he had a natural aptitude for games and a fine influence 
with his juniors, for whom he always had a ready word of 
encouragement. He had also a wheedling way in per- 
suading nervous young batsmen to stand up to his fast 
bowling — rather an ordeal on the uncertain Warriston 
wickets. As he was one of the first of our prominent 
players, he was also one of the first to take an interest in 
developing younger players, and it is good to see his 
example being followed in the present day. 

Older members will readily recollect "Eddie" Gulland, 
a cheerful forward, whose happy philosophy might be 
heard from the depths of the most strenuous scrum. A 
little later came Walter Douglas, a stalwart forward, one 
of a band of enthusiasts whose Sunday afternoons were 
spent foregathering at Goldenacre to note the all-too-slow 
progress of the new pavilion. George B. Cownie, of this 
period, played both games, but was better known as a 
footballer, figuring with success in the back division for 
several seasons. 

Just when he was most needed, S. S. Anderson arrived 
at Goldenacre. He was a tough half-back and a capable 
batsman, but, more than that, he played a considerable 
part in building up and organising football and cricket at 
Goldenacre. " Sammy " was one of the most popular 
personalities we have had at Goldenacre, and he was 
one of the most modest. Here may also be mentioned 
Maurice Miller, Charles H. Smith, H. M. Porteous, and 
Sidney Cormack. 

About 1904 Heriot football grew in importance. This 
was in some measure the result of the good work done by 



ROLL OF HONOUR 1 5 

the earlier players, due also to a steadier flow of capable 
recruits from the School, but most of all to the brilliance of 
the back divisions of that time. Not until the Championship 
team of 1919-20 came along did any Heriot XV. contain so 
many first-rate men as did the teams from 1904 to 1908. 
Two powerful factors in the rise of Heriot football were 
Robert J. Wilson and John W. Frew, and it may well be 
doubted if we shall produce more brilliant players than 
these. Both were of plucky, good-natured, and generous 
disposition, and both were accurate kickers and deadly 
tacklers. While "Bobby" Wilson was a typical scrum- 
half, stockily built and determined, "Jack" Frew, no less 
determined, and one of the best tacklers that ever stepped 
on to a football field, had plenty of pace and resource at 
three-quarter. Needless to say, both were prime favourites, 
and either could have played with distinction in any team. 

Our forwards in those days were on the light side, but 
they were good, and never knew when they were beaten. 
One of the pack leaders was Wm. H. Clark, who did good 
work as Hon. Secretary of the Football Club, and later as 
Captain of the XV. He met with some success as a 
cricketer, and at one time looked like training on as a 
fast bowler, but he will chiefly be remembered as a fast 
and energetic forward, a good leader, and a consistent 
scorer. Among those who gave him good backing in 
many a gruelling game, we recall with pride E. M. M. 
Balfour, "Joe" Potts, Henry H. Potts, and A. M. Smith, 
all sound and capable forwards, also G. L. Davidson and 
T. Wright Smith, both versatile in that they could also 
play at full-back, while Leslie Davidson could put up a 
good game at half. No Goldenacre habitue of that period 
will forget Davidson's artistic dribbling, or the powerful 
punting of Tom Smith, who was not related to the other 
Tom Smith who shone on the wing. Harold S. Wallace, 
a really fine kick, but whose football career was a short 
one, may also be said to belong to this time. 

We have now come to the years just previous to the 
War. It seems not so long ago since two duplicate small 
boys, in kilts, made a practice of viewing the football 



l6 GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

matches at Goldenacre from the touch-line, and nobody- 
thought of denying them their inside-the-ropes privilege. 
No game seemed complete without their presence, and so, 
both at School and afterwards, John and William Lamb 
were right in the heart of things at Goldenacre. They 
attained much of the success at cricket and football that 
might have been expected from two of the keenest boys 
that ever haunted the ground. John, especially as a 
seven-a-side exponent, was the more successful footballer. 
The War intervened early in their careers, but both left 
their mark in Goldenacre history. 

Of those who had just taken up F.P. cricket or football, 
we have to remember R. G. Bannerman, T. W. Cameron, 
Thomas Cowan, H. G. Eagar, Charles E. Green, T. T. 
Halcrow, J. Howes, Eric G. Littlejohn, Allan W. M'Bean, 
David S. M'Gregor, V. C. A. M'Leod, R. W. Potts, and 
J. A. Tait. They were all just beginning their football or 
cricket careers, but one feels safe in saying that in losing 
" Jack " Howes we lost one of the most promising batsmen 
the School has turned out. 

Members of the F.P. Cricket XI. in the years just previous 
to war will not forget A. B. Law, our left-hand bowler for 
some seasons ; and we cannot close without a reference to 
James M. Devvar, one of the School staff, whose coming to 
Goldenacre had added a winning personality to our cricket 
section. 

There, then, is our list of fallen cricketers and footballers 
as we know it To some of us most of them were known 
personally, from Moorhead to Howes, and our sense of loss 
is tempered by our privilege in having known them. In 
the list one will not find the names of great poets, philoso- 
phers, writers, or savants, but there will be found real men, 
who knew how to " play for the side " when the call came, 
Who will deny that their cricket and football helped them ? 

D. M. Clark. 



ROLL OF HONOUR 17 

HERIOT CROSS-COUNTRY CLUB. 

Though the youngest of the Heriot Clubs, the Cross- 
Country Club has reason to be proud of the part its 
members played during the great years of trial and 
struggle. Forty-seven of its members " played their part 
in the world of men," and to many of these were given 
weary days of suffering and long drawn-out nights of 
agony ; to such as came through, our heartfelt sympathy 
goes out for the past, and we rejoice with them over 
the spiritual reward, " Well done, thou good and faithful 
servant ! " But let us linger lovingly awhile with the 
memories of those honoured comrades who ran their last 
race struggling all the way against overwhelming odds, 
but "all out" for their country's team, like the true 
sportsmen they were. 

To those of us who were privileged to be the original 
members of the Club it will seem but fitting that we give 
pride of place to our first Club Captain, Charles Paterson. 
Charlie's kindly personality, the enthusiasm which he 
effused and the interest he took in runners less experienced 
than himself endeared him to us all, and, as he was the 
first of the Club to fall, the news perhaps hit us even harder 
than that of many an equally good comrade who fell when 
we were more inured to the struggle and the sacrifices it 
entailed. 

Andrew Baxter and George R. M'Gechan were also two 
of the original members of the Club and staunch supporters 
in our first year. Baxter was invariably bright, cheery, and 
the life of the " pack," while M'Gechan ran with much of 
that grit and determination which were to be so character- 
istic of our Scottish troops. 

John A. Angus joined the Club in its second year, and, if 
he never turned out to be quite so good across country as 
we had hoped, he displayed great possibilities on the track. 
He was a sprinter of more than average ability, and an 
excellent half-miler, but he was more than these ; he was a 
strong factor in the social life of the Club, and some of us 
can recall boisterous days and long evenings round camp- 



1 8 GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

fires that will ever remain treasured memories. Wherever 
Jack was he was a good chum, and whatever he did proved 
him a true sportsman. 

Willie Porteous was of a rather quiet and retiring 
disposition, and perhaps few who came in contact with 
him fully appreciated all that was hidden by a rather shy 
mannerism, but those who were privileged to know him are 
confident that he fought to the end with quiet determination 
and steadfast faith. 

In Leslie Johnston the Club lost one of its greatest 
enthusiasts and a magnetic personality which attracted all 
with whom he came in contact. Leslie was a sterling 
runner, with a marvellous turn of pace when it came to 
the " race home " after a long cross-country run, but even 
greater than his abilities as a runner were his qualities 
as a friend. Closely associated with several of the holiday- 
camps, which did so much to establish lasting associations 
amongst the members of the Cross-Country Club, there 
was zest in everything that he did, and, when a few of the 
older members are gathered together, there are more 
reminiscences of Leslie to recall than of any other. A few 
of us were drawn very near to Leslie in that intimate and 
sympathetic talk which is engendered by a long day amidst 
the hills or a night round the camp-fire with the moonlight 
playing on the water, and which, in giving expression to 
mutual thoughts, serves to knit friendships close and deep. 

James R. Milne, who by his performances at School had 
showed great ability as a runner, fully justified the high 
hopes entertained regarding him after he became a member 
of the Club. Unfortunately, by various causes, he was 
prevented from carrying out the training necessary to 
attain the honours which were well within his powers. 

Allan W. M'Bean, though a member of the Football 
Club, was also a member of the Cross-Country Club and an 
active participant in its social activities. He was one of the 
personalities at our later camps, and the Millport camp in 
19 1 3 will always be associated in our memories with his 
keen, breezy manner of tackling every difficulty that arose. 

The last recruit to the Club before the war, James 



ROLL OF HONOUR 19 

Brown Mackenzie, had scarcely " got into his stride " ere 
the sterner realities claimed him and we were deprived of a 
powerful runner who would have been a valuable asset to 
the Club. 

Greater even than our loss is the honour they have 
conferred upon us, for the lustre of their sacrifice endureth 
for aye ; may the nobility of their example be with us and, 
as they gave their all for us, so may we learn to give of our 
best according to the light we possess. From most of us 
the Team claims some petty personal sacrifice, but the 
supreme claim is only for the revered few.

HERIOT GOLF CLUB. 

This Club contributed a very large proportion of its 
membership to the fighting forces of the Crown. 

In all, seventy-two past and present members joined up, 
and many of them held Commissions. Nine died on 
service — Lieut. R. G. Bannerman, 2nd Lieut. William 
Brown, 2nd Lieut. Ewen J. Campbell. Trooper H. H. 
Duncan, Private George Dunlop, Corporal John Ford, 
Private Walter L. Scott, 2nd Lieut. Alexander M. Smith, 
and Private George S. Smith. 

Some of those we know to have been very fine exponents 
of the game. R. G. Bannerman was certainly an outstanding 
golfer, and, had he lived, would have been, we believe, in the 
first rank of amateur players.

THE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS. 

The record of the School O.T.C. in the War, as was to 
be expected, is an excellent one. 

The numbers are remarkable : Of 383 cadets who were 
available for service 370, or fully 96 per cent., are known 
to have served, and have their names inscribed on the Roll 



20 GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

of Honour. Of this number 69, or more than 18 per cent, 
fell in action or died on service. The Corps furnished to 
the army in all 173 officers. In the first months of the 
War, when trained officers were few, many of these young 
cadets were granted commissions, and went on to the 
battlefield with very little training beyond what they had 
received in the Corps. No light task was theirs ; they did 
their duty nobly ; and it is not surprising to find that 
many of them were killed in action. Among the cadets 
of the O.T.C. who thus fell early in the War were 2nd 
Lieuts. William J. Aitchison, D. Douglas Brown (Cadet 
L.-Corpl.), Claud B. Munro (Cadet L.-Corpl.), and David I. 
Reid. Sergt.-Major John S. Morrison, D.C.M. (Cadet 
Sergt.-Major), ought to be included here, for though not 
commissioned he might easily have been had he desired it, 
for he was one of the most efficient of the cadets. All 
these fell in 191 5 in France or Flanders, except 2nd Lieut. 
Reid, who was killed at Gallipoli. 

Other cadets who fell early in the struggle were Piper 
John F. Bennie of the London Scottish, who was killed on 
9th November 1914, and was thus the first Herioter of the 
new army to give his life for his country (he had been 
Sergt.-Piper in the O.T.C, and going up to London enlisted 
in the London Scottish, became a piper in the battalion, 
and went to France with the first contingent) ; Privates 
William Bell, William M. Lamb, Lewis G. Macrae, and 
Leading- Seaman Alexander Gray, who were killed at 
Gallipoli ; Private John Malone, killed in the Gretna 
Railway Disaster on his way to the front ; Private A. 
Cameron Lindsay, who was killed in Flanders ; and 
Sapper James Arnold, who died while in training. 

In 1916 there were still many young officers who obtained 
their Commissions on account of their training in the O.T.C, 
before Officers Cadet Battalions had been organised. The 
death roll of this year includes the names of several officers 
of this class : — Lieut. Alexander W. Aitchison ; Lieut. 
Robert G. Bannerman ; 2nd Lieut. Thos. W. Cameron ; 
Captain John A. Henry (Cadet Colour-Sergt.) ; 2nd Lieuts. 
Robert G. Millar and Christopher Pratt (Cadet Corpl.). 



ROLL OF HONOUR 21 

All these fell in France as well as the following : — Private 
Norman H. Anderson ; Corpl. John H. Howie ; Privates 
James M. Ireland and Robert Maxwell. 

As has been pointed out elsewhere 1917 was the most 
fatal year of the War, and the toll it took of the young men 
from the Cadet Corps was very great indeed. The officers 
had now the benefit of further training in an O.C.B., but 
the discipline in the O.T.C. had been such an asset to them 
that they soon made themselves efficient, and were sent out 
to the battlefield at once. The list of officers includes the 
names of 2nd Lieut. James Bell, Captain of the School, 
191 5 ; 2nd Lieuts. Charles M. Black, Laurence S. B. Brown, 
M.C. (Cadet Corpl.), David A. Davidson (Cadet Company 
Sergt.- Major), Andrew J. Fernie, Andrew Fulton (Cadet 
L.-Corpl.), Thomas T. Halcrow (Cadet L.-Corpl. Signaller), 
and Francis S. Howell (Cadet Sergt.) ; Lieut. Charles H. 
Jardine (Cadet L.-Corpl. Cyclist), who obtained his Com- 
mission in 19 14 ; 2nd Lieuts. John Lamb, Richard F. 
M'Gibbon, Robert D. M'Lean, Victor C. A. MacLeod, 
Gideon A. F. Renwick, and Keith S. Runciman ; and 
Captain Wm. F. Robertson (Cadet L.-Corpl.). Lieut. 
Jardine fell in East Africa ; 2nd Lieut. MacLeod in 
Palestine. 2nd Lieuts. Black and Lamb died in hospital ; 
the others on the battlefield in France. 2nd Lieuts. Bell, 
Brown, Davidson, and Renwick were in the same class, 
VI. Senior of 1915-16, and went straight from School to 
the War, as did also 2nd Lieuts. Fulton, Howell, and 
M'Lean, and Lieut. Jardine. 

To this 1917 list we have to add the following names : — 
Pte. Alexander M. Bisset ; Corpl. John Broomfield (Cadet 
Corpl.); Pte. James H. Cresswell, M.A. (Cadet Sergt.); 
L.-Corpl. Wm. S. Gordon ; Corpl. Thomas A. Grigor ; 
Ptes. Kenneth M'Bean, James C. Monteith, and John A. 
Patterson (Cadet Sergt.) (the last mentioned having been 
rejected as an officer in 1915 on account of defective 
eyesight enlisted in the ranks) ; and L.-Corpl. Reginald G. 
Thorburn, who died of wounds on the Balkan Front. 

In 1918 the following Cadets who held Commissions 
were killed in action : — 2nd Lieuts. Ian W. A. Beynon

(Cadet L.-Corpl.) and George D. Fraser ; Lieut. David S.

The following names fall to be added : — Ptes. David H.

THE SERBIANS. 

It is peculiarly appropriate that some mention should be 
made in the Heriot War Memorial Volume of the appear- 
ance of Serbian boys at George Heriot's School. 

Shortly after the commencement of Session 1916-17, 
twenty-five young Serbs, their ages ranging from 12 to 
17 years, were admitted by the Governors to all the 
educational privileges of the ancient Foundation, and the 
last of them did not quit the School till the close of 
Session 1918-19. 

It was the attempt of the Central Powers to crush little 
Serbia that originated the Great World War, and the boys 
who came to Heriot's to be educated were part of the 300 
refugees who arrived in Britain after they had traversed 
the wilds of Albania and been rescued by the friendly 
hands of French and British. 

During their stay at School they acquitted themselves 
very creditably in their studies. Seven of their number 
passed the University Preliminary Examinations and four 



ROLL OF HONOUR 23 

are now Engineering students of Edinburgh University. 
The others have returned to Serbia to continue their studies 
at Belgrade University. Besides these there were four boys 
who passed part of the Preliminary Examination before 
returning home. 

The Serbs took an active part in the Athletics of the 
School, chiefly Football, and a number were members of 
the Heriot Troop of Boy Scouts and of the O.T.C. 

As the Headmaster on one occasion pointed out, the 
advent of the Serbian boys was not altogether a one-sided 
arrangement, for it had conferred many advantages on the 
School in respect of the feeling of caviar aderie they had 
inspired amongst the other boys. 

Lord Provost Sir J. Lome MacLeod expressed the mind 
of the Governors when he said that what had been done 
for the Serbian boys at George Heriot's School might be 
regarded as an indication of their gratitude to Serbia and 
appreciation of the high services rendered by the Serbian 
people in the cause of humanity. 

On several occasions the Serbian boys were visited at 
School by distinguished representatives of their nation. 
Among these were Prince George of Serbia, the Serbian 
Minister in London, the Presidents of the Industrial 
Chamber and Chamber of Commerce of Belgrade, the 
Education Minister and Professors of the University of 
Belgrade. The boys had also the pleasure of being 
introduced to the Russian Minister in London and to 
Lord Rosebery. 

Before their departure, the Serbian boys deputed 
Sir Edward Parrott to beg the Governors to permit them 
to erect a brass tablet within the precincts of the building 
as a perpetual memorial and token of gratitude. 

The Memorial, erected in the Dining-Hall, bears this 
inscription : — 

" This Tablet records the everlasting gratitude of the 
Twenty-six Serbian Refugee Boys, who, during the Great 
War, were freely and generously admitted to all the 
educational privileges of this ancient and honourable 
Foundation," 



24 GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

Then follows a Serbian quotation from the Bible 
(Matt. xxv. 40):— 

" Zaista vam Kazhem ; sve shto uchiniste jednome od 
ove moje najmanje brache, meni uchiniste." 

James E. Wood. 



"M'CRAE'S" BATTALION AT HERIOT'S. 

The 1 6th (Service) Battalion The Royal Scots, raised by 
Colonel Sir George M'Crae, took up its Headquarters at 
Heriot's on mobilisation on 15th December 1914. 

The Battalion had been raised amid great enthusiasm in 
the short space of twelve days. The Governors agreed to 
place a large part of the School buildings at the service of 
the regiment. 

The adjacent Castle Brewery had been acquired by the 
Governors for the purpose of preserving the amenity of the 
School, and this also was handed over to the 16th Royal 
Scots. After considerable reconstruction the old brewery 
provided most comfortable billets. The Examination Hall, 
the Drawing and other School rooms, were also made avail- 
able for billets, and the whole Battalion, 1,350 strong, was 
comfortably housed at Heriot's. All the requisite cooking 
and washing arrangements necessary for a battalion were 
provided. 

Not for the first time had Heriot's been turned into a 
military depot. 

In the days of long ago Heriot's played its part in 
military evolutions, and helped to make Scottish history. 

In 1650 Cromwell, in his attempt to subjugate the 
Scottish people, billeted his soldiers in Greyfriars. and 
used the School as a hospital for his sick and wounded. 
The Dining Hall he turned into a farrier's shop. 

After the Battle of Both well Bridge in 1679 tne Cove- 
nanting prisoners were confined for five months in the 
Square on the east side of the School now known as the 
Covenanters' Prison. 

In old volunteering times, at the end of the Eighteenth 



ROLL OF HONOUR 25 

and beginning of the Nineteenth Centuries, the ground in 
front of the School was the favourite place for the musters 
and parades of the civic forces. Here their colours were 
presented ; here they mobilised and were disbanded. The 
School grounds bristled with arms, and the old walls echoed 
and re-echoed with the noise of martial movements and the 
military commands of officers, one of the most zealous and 
enthusiastic of whom was Sir Walter Scott. 

A hundred years after, on the outbreak of the Great 
War, " Heriot's Green" was again the rendezvous of 
gallant Scotsmen brought together by the clarion call 
of national duty, and not a few of those who only a few 
short years before had played their school-boy games on 
the same ground were preparing to take their part in the 
greater game of war. 

Officers and men of the 16th Royal Scots will ever 
cherish fond recollections of their early training days at 
the famous School, and that in spite of the severity of the 
discipline and the arduous nature of the instruction they 
had to undergo. 

Time was all important, and the men worked with a will, 
eager speedily to fit themselves for the great task in front 
of them. 

Good old Heriot's ! Many a time on the stricken fields 
of France have our thoughts turned to the old brewery and 
the grand old School. 

The Colonel held orderly room in the room to the left 
of the entrance to the School Hall, and there delinquents 
were dealt with each morning at 9.30. Many a funny 
incident occurred. The men were men of high spirit and 
good character, but there were occasional lapses from the 
stern discipline enforced, and ingenious were the explana- 
tions given in extenuation of their peccadillos. 

The comfort and suitability of the billets at Heriot's 
were proved by the excellent health of the Battalion. 
Sick cases were few, but all, from the Colonel downwards, 
shared the pain and discomfort of the various types of 
inoculation which a wise army administration periodically 
inflicted upon us. 



26 GEORGE HERIOT'S SCHOOL 

Physical exercises formed an important part in Battalion 
training. It was a great sight to see the whole Battalion 
going through the various movements in the School Play- 
ground under the direction of Mr Bruce Sutherland, to 
whom the Battalion was much indebted for his willing 
and gratuitous help. 

It was a brave sight to see the Battalion marching into 
barracks after field operations ; trooping in, Company by 
Company, and forming up in the School Parade to the 
strains of its superb Pipe Band with its fifteen pipers " an' 
a' an' a'," and this to the great delight of the boys formed 
up on the terrace by the ever popular and genial Mr Ness, 
to whom the Battalion owes much for his unfailing kindness 
and help. 

For six happy months the 16th Royal Scots enjoyed the 
kind hospitality of Heriot's, and many a longing look was 
turned to the grand old pile as the Battalion marched for 
the last time out of its sacred precincts. 

Many a brave lad then looked upon the home of the 
Battalion for the last time, and the country is richer to-day 
for the great sacrifice made. 

The records of the 16th bear witness to their bravery 
and efficiency. 

The despatches of high command have placed on record 
the brilliant and imperishable deeds they performed in the 
greatest struggle for liberty the world has ever seen, and 
which helped to bring that struggle to a successful and 
triumphant issue. 

George McCrae.

The official notice of the award states that it was made for 
most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty near Hoogmolen 
on 22nd October 1918, when in command of a section of 
machine guns attached to the right-flank platoon of the assaulting 
battalion. 

Immediately the troops advanced they were subjected to 
intense enfilade machine-gun fire from Hill 66, on the right 
flank. Lieut. M'Gregor fearlessly went forward and located the 
enemy guns, and realised that it was impossible to get his guns 
carried forward either by pack or by hand without great delay, as 
the ground was absolutely bare and fire-swept. 

Ordering his men to follow by a more covered route, he 
mounted the limber and galloped forward under intense fire for 
about six hundred yards to cover. 

The driver, horses, and limber were all hit, but Lieut. M'Gregor 
succeeded in getting the guns into action, effectively engaging the 
enemy, subduing their fire, and enabling the advance to be 
resumed. With the utmost gallantry he continued to expose 
himself in order to direct and control the fire of his guns until, 
about an hour later, he was killed. His great gallantry and 
supreme devotion to duty were the admiration of all ranks.
