" Wha for Scotland's King and law 

Freedom's sword will strongly draw ? 
Freeman stand, or freeman fa', 
I,et him on wi' me ! " 

SUCH was the spirit of the patriot Bruce ; such was the spirit of Scotland in days of old ; 
such is the modern spirit that made the heroes of the Great War ! We would not have 
believed it so, unless it had been proved to the hilt that our countrymen of to-day are 
as ready to tread the paths of duty and of danger — to do or die in deeds of valour — as 
were their forefathers, who stand transfigured in our mind's eye by the glory and the 
glamour of the past. These familiar lines from the greatest patriotic song ever written are the 
keynote that has always inspired the Scottish race. History tells how often in the past have 
Scotsmen drawn " the Sword of Freedom," and how, when convinced that the cause is just, they 
never hesitated to stand or to fall — never refused to follow wherever man could lead. 

Perhaps, we required a demonstration to remind us that this spirit is not dead. We had 
lived so long in what was called " the piping times of peace," that succeeding generations had 
beaten all the ancient swords into modern ploughshares. We plied the vocations of commerce and 
industry with an ardour implying that " getting on in the world " was the main purpose of life and 
nothing else could matter. We neglected, nay, almost despised the arts of war. The Volunteers 
were sneered at and their work regarded as a harmless recreation. Our Territorials, mostly youths 
were sarcastically referred to as " playing at soldiers." We were proud of our glorious history and 
traditions, but thanked Heaven that we lived in more enlightened times when war was well-nigh 
impossible between the Great Powers of the earth, because our boasted civilisation was sure to 
substitute the " sweet reasonableness " of arbitration. 

The Great Awakening came. At one swoop the house of cards we had built was felled to the 
ground. We felt stupefied : we were helpless. What saved us ? The inborn spirit of our 
xace. The latent fire burst forth in flame. It roused us from our lethargy. Those whom we 
thought modern degenerates were brave men in disguise. Little did we think that many of the 
ordinary men we met in daily life were heroes of the first order. They did not know it them- 
selves. But Necessity arose, and Opportunity came. Our countrymen proved that Scotland 
stands where it did — the home of the brave : the land of the free. 

Scotsmen claim no monopoly of merit or of bravery in the Great War, but in writing a Foreword 
to this Roll of Honour, I do claim that they have added lustre to their name, and, in the eyes of the 
world, established a reputation for daring, loyalty, and staying power that cannot be excelled. 
Their praise has been universal. Sir W. Beach Thomas, the war correspondent, wrote : " Whenever 
" the battle rages hottest there is the 51st. The French talk of it with almost religious fervour, 
" and an American officer told me he had never dreamt of troops facing such fire and such obstacles 
**' together. Not once or twice in this war I have heard officers say, ' Thank goodness, the 51st 
" are next to us ! ' " Prince Arthur of Connaught when laying the foundation of the War Memorial 
at Dufftown, said, " I know well the history of the 51st Division and how gloriously it has not 
" only maintained but enhanced the traditions of Scottish bravery, tenacity, and endurance. 
"** The greatest compliment to their magnificent fighting qualities was paid to them by the Germans 

iii 



iv FOREWORD 

** themselves, who regarded them as foes worthy of their steel, and ranked them as the finest 
" fighting unit of the British Army." 

They were really the " Storm Troops " of the Allies, and it is known that in a German order 
giving a list of the regiments from whom they had most to fear, the " lads with the kilts," otherwise 
described as the " ladies from hell," were placed at the top ! * 

This Roll of Honour is a testimony that in whatever Scotland did, the men of Moray took a 
noble and a worthy part. One fact stands to their credit and undying honour and should never 
be forgotten. At the time of the nation's need in the early days of the war the North of Scotland 
showed a higher percentage of voluntary enlistments in proportion to population than any other 
part of the United Kingdom. It is not derogatory to the great efforts of other localities to say 
that the " land beyond the Grampians " topped the list. Could anyone who knows the antecedents 
of the race expect anything else ? History bristles with facts about the fighting instincts of the 
Highlanders. Going back to remote times, theirs was the only Province of the British Isles which 
the Romans failed to conquer — unfortunately for the province, some would say. The Emperor 
Severus, we are told, lost an army of 50,000 in the attempt. Shaw in his famous " History of 
Moray " supplies the words of the Roman historian Tacitus as descriptive of the ancient inhabitants 
• of Moray and particularly the Highlanders : — " This race possessed a sturdy frame of body, limbs 
" well-knit, stern countenances and a great degree of courage. You could not so easily persuade 
" them to till their lands, and observe the respective seasons of the year, as you might bring them 
" to face their enemies, and give and take the most deadly wounds. For they even held it slothful 
" and cowardly to acquire by the sweat of their brows, what they could possess by the shedding 
" of their blood." 

*It will be of great interest to place on record the following official statement, kindly supplied to me by the 
War Office, showing the composition of the 51st Division during the late war as compiled from returns dated 
1st July, 1917 : —

FOREWORD V 

The Danes, after conquering the English, invaded Moray in 1008. They committed great 
ravages, and slaughtered many of the inhabitants. They prepared to settle down on the fertile 
plains of Moray, and sent to Denmark for their wives and children. But the hardy men of the 
^North did not leave them long in possession. Within four years the Danes were defeated at Mort- 
lach, and driven from the country, leaving their progeny behind, which; no doubt, accounts for the 
fair hair and blue eyes so often to be found in the north-east of Scotland. 

The ancient Province of Moray extended from the Spey to the Beauly and from Lochaber 
to the Moray Firth. Here we had a country as varied as the races that inhabited it. The County 
of Moray, as we know it now, is often called the Lowlands. This puzzles strangers who regard the 
whole North of Scotland as the Highlands, but we get out of the difficulty by describing it as the 
Rowlands of the Highlands. Moray, being the richest and most fertile portion, was naturally 
the centre of gravitation for that region which by its remoteness and its system of clans preserved 
xacial characteristics peculiarly its own. It was thus the nursery of a virile race blended with the 
fiery blood of the Picts, the Celts, and the Norse — the " Viking sea-kings " — a race which for 
ages lived independent of Scottish kings and government and whose chiefs of clans held their lands 
Dy no other tenure than a forcible possession. It was practically a huge armed camp in which 
all the inhabitants were trained to arms, ready to repel the predatory incursions of outsiders or to 
fight one another on the smallest provocation. The great men were allowed to build fortalices 
on their own land and exercise jurisdiction on the plea of preserving peace and order, evidence of 
which we see in those ruined towers and castles strewn all over the province, but the result was, 
the nobles and chiefs respected the authority of the Crown only if it was in accordance with their 
own desires — they became factious and ungovernable and insurrections and fighting were frequent 
in every corner. Highlanders from Badenoch and Lochaber made periodic forays to steal the 
cattle of the " Lowland " farmers ; there were constant clan and family feuds that could only be 
wiped out in blood ; some nobles had " the power of pit and gallows " and exercised it with such 
severity that many a man suffered in accordance with the supposed advice of the clansman's wife 
to her husband : " Stand forth, Donald, and be hanged to please the Laird !" 

In the time of King Malcom IV. (1 153 -1 165), the Moraviensis or people of Moray were, in the 
words of Buchanan, of such " a turbulent and unpeaceable disposition " that when the King sought 
to reduce them, they hanged his heralds and chased his army over the Grampian Mountains. Peace 
was not restored until it was agreed that some of the turbulent families should be removed out of 
Moray into southern counties where lands were assigned to them, and in their places some of the 
southrons were transplanted into Moray — an arrangement that was responsible for those isolated 
instances of northern names being found in the South and southern names in the North. 

There are many incidents of personal bravery, loyalty to clanship, utter disregard of life, and 
tenacity to causes, even though mistaken, that will always fire the imagination as the most mar- 
vellous the world has known. Take for instance, the exploits of the Clan Chattan, who inhabited 
the higher portion of the Ancient Province of Moray. They were attacked at Ruthven by 400 
Camerons, yet, because Mackintosh the Captain did not give command of the right wing in battle to 
Cluny Macpherson who claimed to be chief of the Clan Chattan, but to the other branch, the David- 
sons of Invernahavon, the Macphersons stood aside as spectators of the fight until nearly all the 
Mackintoshes and Davidsons had been killed. On seeing this, family ties prevailed, and they 
Tushed in upon the Camerons and slaughtered them so that scarcely a man escaped. It was this 
fight which gave rise to the most extraordinary of all gladiatorial combats that took place on the 
Inch of Perth in 1396 in presence of the King and Scottish nobility. The combatants were the 
Macphersons and the Davidsons, who were invited by the King to settle their quarrel by choosing 
thirty a side and fighting to the death. This they did. It was not a kingly spectacle, for only a 
few men survived. There were other occasions in which the combatants practically decimated one 
another, notably the terrible conflict in 1454 between the Mackintoshes and the Munroes, all about 
-a cattle raid, and in 1544 the great fight between 500 of the Clan Ranald and 300 Frasers in which 
only ten of the former and four of the latter remained alive. 



vi FOREWORD 

Though a digression, it is interesting to recall those historical facts to prove the antecedents 
of our Moray race and the inherent martial spirit that has inspired it from remote ages down, we 
claim, to the present day. For long we lived in an atmosphere of peace that lulled our fighting 
instincts to sleep. We began to doubt if they existed. But when the Great War came the men 
of Moray, stirred by a just cause and fortified with that pride of race which ever impels to daring 
deeds, proved themselves worthy, 

And their martial blood descended from brave sires of long ago. 
Though dormant, now up-rises with a rush and bids them go. 

The last battle on British soil was fought within the province of Moray on Culloden Moor. 
It sealed Prince Charlie's fate and the inhabitants began to devote themselves to peaceful pursuits 
until the time of the Napoleonic wars when the threatened invasion by the French roused them, 
and in 1804 the first Volunteers or Fencibles were formed.* From these, drafts were made to keep 
the armies in the field, but subsequently, though many joined the ranks as professional soldiers, 
military training fell into abeyance and was not resuscitated until after the Crimean War, when in 
1859 owing to a feeling of uneasiness about the state of National Defence a movement was started 
in Elgin to establish a Volunteer Rifle Corps, f Leading men of the County took up the movement 
with enthusiasm, but were discouraged by local ridicule on the one hand, and a stingy Government 
on the other. As showing how a frivolous remark may stick, the saying of an Elgin doctor at a public 
meeting then held, has many a time been quoted up till the present day, that " if the French landed 
in the Moray Firth the Volunteer Rifle Corps would be the first up the Glen of Rothes ! " The 
Government began by doling out one rifle to every four men and insisted that they should provide 
their own uniforms, one result of which was that the Volunteers throughout the Kingdom became 
a laughing stock owing to the wondrous varieties and colours of their costumes. 

Despite all difficulties, however, four companies were formed in Morayshire in i860 — one at 
Forres, two in Elgin and one at Rothes — and after most strenuous drilling by day and by night, they 
were enabled to make their first public appearance at the Royal Review in Edinburgh held on 7th 
August of the same year, when Queen Victoria for the first time inspected her Scottish Volunteer 
Army, 22,000 strong. The Morayshire Rifles mustered 240 men. They were attached to the 3rd 
Battalion of the First Division, and were commanded by Major Sir A. P. Gordon Cumming. The 
officers of the four companies were Captains F. C. MacKenzie, James Johnston, William Culbard, 
and John Grant — stalwarts who in after years did such great service to the interests of volunteering 
in Moray. It was no easy matter to provide the outfits, which cost £2 ys. nd. per man, but such 
was the enthusiasm, it is recorded, that the Elgin City Band unable to buy side-arms borrowed the 
local policemen's batons and marched past the Queen, playing in grand style ! 

Such was the inception of modern military training as we have known it in Moray. From that 
time onward the Volunteer movement developed and passed through its various phases, kept 
together by the aid of shooting competitions and social gatherings such as annual Balls for the 
members and their friends — on the same alluring principle as the Sunday School treats ! If the 
truth be told, the Volunteers for many years were not taken seriously by the public, nor even by 
themselves, greatly owing to the general belief that in the new and enlightened world the possibility 
of their being ever engaged in actual warfare was a remote contingency. They were subjected to 
unmeasured chaff and it is to be feared that often the public attitude was similar to that of the 
old minister in a country parish, who, feeling annoyed at the sensation caused in his church by the 
noisy and late entry of a young volunteer clad in his new uniform, angrily exclaimed : " Sit doon, 
man, sit doon, an' we'll see yer new breeks whan the kirk gangs oot ! " 

♦The old colours of the local Militia were presented to the safe keeping of the Elgin Town Council by the 
Duke of Richmond and Gordon, in 1920. 

fThe first meeting was held at Elgin on 20th June, 1859, under the presidency of Provost James Grant, 
when it was moved by Mr. James Jameson, solicitor, seconded by Mr. Alexander McKenzie, bank agent, and 
unanimously agreed to, that it was " desirable that a Rifle Corps be raised by voluntary enrolment for the city 
and district of Elgin, in terms of the circular from the Secretary of War." 



FOREWORD vii 

From 1880 onwards when the Volunteers were consolidated into a single corps with head- 
quarters in Elgin and the nine companies styled the 1st Elginshire Rifle Volunteer Corps, the 
Battalion on all great occasions was able to muster full strength, over 1,000 efficients, and was 
often referred to as a model for other counties in Scotland to follow. Its history is a long record of 
the usual functions — inspections, camps, royal reviews, guards of honour, route marches, &c. In 
1885 its designation was changed to the 3rd Volunteer Battalion Seaforth Highlanders after which 
it donned tartan trews and kilt jackets and assembled at brigade camps as a part of The Highland 
Brigade. It was not until 1899 at Gordon Castle Camp that the Volunteers were arrayed in 
MacKenzie tartan kilts and became full-fledged Highlanders ! 

In 1900 the South African War took an alarming turn ; it was then realised that the Volunteers 
were a serious fighting force. In response to the call of the authorities 223 members of the Moray- 
shire Battalion volunteered for active service and 213 for garrison duty, and in due time three 
Service Companies successively embarked for South Africa and took an honourable part in that 
campaign. In after years under the Territorial system the battalion became known as the 6th 
Seaforth Highlanders. Such in brief outline is the history of the county regiment up till the eventful 
year of 1914 when the Great Test came. 

The Declaration of War with Germany on the 4th August, 1914, fell like a bomb-shell on an 
astonished world. The people were awe-struck ; their comfortable notions of universal peace were 
torn up by the roots : their minds seemed paralysed not so much with fear as with the dread of 
terrible possibilities. The prayer, " Oh, Lord ! give us peace in our time " was unanswered : the 
time of peril had come. And we were not prepared. The utter helplessness of our position through 
lack of military training was borne bitterly home to us : Volunteers now merged into Territorials, 
who had been treated with such indifference in the past, had, at last, " come to their own " and 
suddenly sprang into favour as a force of front-rank importance. We had confidence in our race 
and were proud of its glorious traditions but the thought ever recurred : How could our young men, 
accustomed to peaceful pursuits and untried in arms face the trained millions of Germany ? But 
our young men had no illusions. They saw the path of duty clearly and followed it, not with sad 
and woeful countenances, but in that cheerful, sprightly spirit of sport and even mirth, that soon 
made the British " Tommy " the wonder of the world. 

In Moray it was indeed an eventful Tuesday (4th of August), when the message reached 
Elgin about 5 p.m. to " Mobilize." Immediate action was taken. Outlying companies were warned 
by 'phone and telegraph, and so complete were the arrangements of the Battalion Headquarters 
that an advance half Battalion of the 6th Seaforths assembled at Elgin at 11 a.m. next day in 
readiness to proceed to its war station, which on that occasion was the Cromarty Defences. The 
other half Battalion, consisting of some of the outlying companies, proceeded by special train the 
following day. The Squadron of the Scottish Horse Yeomanry belonging to the locality, also 
assembled at Elgin. They were given a little more time to complete their arrangements and get 
the necessary number of horses collected before being despatched by special train to Scone. One 
gratifying feature of the assembly of the 6th Seaforths was that there were no absentees. Every 
man was accounted for, and in a good many cases where men had completed their time and handed 
in their uniform they hurried back to Headquarters demanding its return. There was no lack of 
enthusiasm and well do we remember those two days at Elgin Station where so many of the towns- 
folk assembled to see the " boys " go off. The young soldiers, many of them mere youths, in con- 
trast to the weeping mothers and friends they left behind, kept up a brave show full of hope and 
even hilarity. Alas ! poor boys, little did they think that when the trial and stress of the War 
was over, so many of that noble band of nearly 1,000 Seaforths would never return ! 

Their stay at Invergordon was short and they removed to their training station at Bedford. 
Their regular Adjutant was recalled to his regiment and the sergeant-instructors with the exception 
of one, were posted elsewhere. But this only served to put the Officers and N.C.O.'s more on their 
mettle. Everyone went to work with a will, and training proceeded with the greatest keenness. 
After a while, all ranks became impatient for the order to cross over, to take part in the great events 



viii FOREWORD 

of the time. They were afraid the war would be finished before they could get a chance of showing 
their worth. And when the order did eventually come, it was received with manifestations of 
delight, that henceforth they were to be part of the great field service army. 

They crossed to France without mishap. The officer in command was Lieut.-Col. T. G. 
Maclaren, who was shortly afterwards invalided home. He was succeeded by Lieut.-Col. J. Grant 
Smith, who through the various grades had long been attached to the Strathspey company, and 
was always an enthusiastic Volunteer. After a few days in billets at Robecq the Battalion went 
into trenches for the first time at Richebourg. The first company to take up position went over 
in the open ground at three o'clock in the afternoon (there were no communication trenches in 
those days) under Major Gair, and the other companies followed at short intervals. Such was the 
beginning of their actual warfare, and in the words of that officer (now Lt.-Col. Gair, O.B.E.) 
whose long military experience was invaluable in the early organisation and leadership of the 
Battalion — " Right well did the Morayshire lads behave from that time onwards till the conclusion 
of the campaign." 

Meanwhile, a new Reserve Battalion, styled the 2 /6th Seaforth Highlanders, was formed, 
under Lieut.-Col. W. Rose Black, to receive all ranks unfit for service abroad, to train recruits and 
act as a feeder to replace casualties in the Service Unit. In January, 1915, instructions were issued 
to form a third line for the purpose of feeding the first and second lines. This was accomplished 
and the 3 /6th Seaforth Highlanders were trained first at Elgin West End School and next at Ripon, 
under the command of Major C. E. Johnston, who afterwards bravely fell in France during the 
great German offensive of March, 1918. Later on, the 2 /6th was amalgamated with the 2 /5th 
Seaforths (Sutherland and Caithness) and the same happened to the 3 /6th and the third lines of 
the 4th (Ross-shire) and the 5th (Sutherland and Caithness) which were formed into a training 
battalion for the Seaforths' Territorial Battalions in France. In this way the machinery was 
completed. None of the reserve battalions of the Seaforths went out as independent units, but 
during their existence they were used to provide reinforcements for their respective service battalions 
at the front. 

The strength of the i/6th or service Battalion at embarkation on 1st May, 1915, was 965 ; 
the number enlisted during the war was 4,076 : the total number of men who passed through the 
6th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders was 4,888. These figures include the Battalion which served 
abroad, the second line Battalion that remained in this country, and the third reserve Battalion, 
which furnished drafts for the overseas unit. Of course, the men enlisted did not all belong to the 
county. After landing, the Battalion served in France throughout the whole time of the 
War, taking its full share of hardship and danger as the large number of casualties reveals, and 
contributing to the record of daring and reliability that has earned universal fame for the Seaforths 
as one of the best fighting regiments of the line. The official records show that the actual number 
of men who were killed in action, died of wounds, or died of sickness, within the Battalion, was 
50 officers, and 1,113 warrant officers, non-commissioned officers and men — a number one-fifth 
greater than the original strength of the i/6th Battalion on embarkation. This remarkable fact 
is more eloquent than words. 

In the late War the doings of individual regiments have been veiled by that secrecy deemed 
advisable by the military authorities, and it is difficult to obtain information regarding exploits 
collective and personal that would have been of intense interest to present and future generations. 
The officers and personnel of the Battalions changed many times during the War and it is impossible 
for one officer to speak from personal experience for the whole period. But the following Memoran- 
dum which has been kindly supplied to me by Lieut.-Col. J. Grant Smith, D.S.O., who has had it 
amplified and verified by several officers serving with the Battalion at the different periods under 
review, will place on record the special engagements in which the 6th Seaforth Highlanders took 
part. It is not a complete history or diary of the Battalion's experiences, but the engagements and 
incidents here mentioned are regarded as the most important : — 



FOREWORD ix 

The 6th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders was mobilised on the 4th August, 1914, 
arrived in France on 1st May, 1915, and served with the 51st Division until the Armistice. 
The Cadre returned to Elgin on the 16th April, 1919. 

Fbstubert : June, 1915. 

The Battalion, under Lieut.-Col. J. Grant Smith (awarded the D.S.O. a year later) 
took part in its first engagement after a few days' experience in the trenches. In those 
early days, there was a shortage of shells, and casualties were heavy. 

Labyrinths : March to July, 191 5. 

The Battalion took over the Labyrinthe from the French. This sector was really 
a Boche minefield, and, though enemy mines were blown up practically every night, 
and repeated attacks had to be repulsed, they never lost a single trench. 

Somme : July, 1916. High Wood. 

The Battalion was not heavily engaged in these operations. 

Armentieres : 15TH September, 1916. 

There was a highly successful raid, which was then described as the best infantry 
raid that had taken place in France. 

Beaumont Hamel : 13TH November, 1916. 

At Beaumont Hamel the 51st Division scored a conspicuous success as pioneers 
of the " leap frog " system of attack. Beaumont Hamel was reckoned to be impregnable. 
Second Lieut. Edwards, Lossiemouth (afterwards killed) won the D.S.O., captured a German 
Regimental Commander and his Staff, and some 400 men. Details of his exploits were 
recorded in the " Times " and other newspapers about this date. 

Arras : 9TH April, 1917. 

At Arras, on the 9th April, 1917, the Battalion attacked at Roclincourt. All 
objectives were reached up to time, and they had a big say in the taking of Vimy Ridge. 

Taking of the Chemical Works at Roeux : i6th May, 191 7. 

Second-Lieut. J. Bliss, Forres, (afterwards killed), after being twice wounded, left the 
dressing station on hearing of the battle arrangements, and took the Chemical Works 
with a " scratch " Company. 

Ypres — Passchendaele : 31ST July, 1917. 

The Battalion reached all objectives the first day. Sergt. Alexr. Edwards, of Lossie- 
mouth, won the V.C., and it is said that the deed for which the V.C. was awarded was 
reckoned to be the least of his accomplishments during the operation. He was three 
times wounded, was reported missing in March, 1918, and was not afterwards traced. 

ist Battle of Cambrai : 20TH to 23RD November, 1917. 

The Battalion, under the personal leadership of Lieut.-Col. S. Macdonald, D.S.O., 
in co-operation with Tanks, took Flesquieres on the second day of attack, and Col. 
Macdonald was awarded a Bar to his D.S.O. On the 30th November, 1917, the Battalion 
took part in the withdrawal after the German success of that day. 

2nd Battle of Cambrai : 2 ist March, 1918. 

On 2 ist March, 1918, a stand was made by the Battalion on the Beaumetz-Morchies 
Trench line. This stand was made at a critical time in the German offensive. It was 
of great value, and earned the praise of the highest authorities. Here, Major C. E. 
Johnston, Elgin, commanded, and was seen to fall at the head of his troops. He was 
awarded the D.S.O., was reported missing, and is now presumed killed. 



<. FOREWORD 

IyYs : April, i 918. 

During this month, the Germans were making a rapid advance, and the Battalion 
moved with the Division north from the Somme to the River Lys, where they consoli- 
dated the broken Portuguese line at Robecq, and succeeded in bringing the German 
advance to a standstill. Many of the members of the Battalion were familiar with the 
neighbourhood of Robecq as it was the first village in which they were billeted on their 
arrival in France three years previously. It was then a peaceful village, surrounded by 
orchards with apple blossom, but in 1918, it was a smoking mass of ruins. Major C. E. 
Fysh won the D.S.O. here ; he had previously been awarded the M.C. and bar. He 
was afterwards killed in action at Chaumuzy, on 25th July, 1918. Lieut.-Col. S. 
Macdonald was wounded here. During the operations from July, 1918, till the Armistice 
in November, many acts of personal gallantry on the part of the young Commanding 
Officer, Lieut.-Col. John E. Laurie, are recorded. He won the D.S.O. and Bar, Legion of 
Honour, and a Brevet Majority. 

Reims : July, 1918. 

The Division was sent south to support the French, and the Battalion attacked on 
the right base of the salient at Reims, and assisted the French in their initial offensive of 
the last phase of the War. The men of the Battalion were very proud of the effusive 
gratitude of the French for their conduct at Reims, and they had always been on the 
most friendly terms with the French troops and civilians. They had previously relieved 
French battalions on two occasions, viz : — At Thiepval Wood in July, 1915. and at The 
Labyrinths, in March, 1916. 

Arras and Eastward : August to October, 1918. 

The Battalion took part in some hard fighting in the final phase. Commencing 
from the vicinity of RoeUx and Fampoux, they continued with short rests in the final 
" push " up to the village of Famars near Valenciennes, where the Battalion fired its 
parting shot at the Boche. They were relieved at Famars on the 28th October, 1918. 
On the nth November, 1918, when the Armistice was declared, the Battalion was at 
Thun St. Martin near Cambrai. 

Casualties of the 6th Seaforth Highlanders. — The following statement is unique and will 
be commented on in every home in Morayshire. I am enabled to give it by the kind co-operation 
of Col. J. Grant Smith, who has been assisted in its compilation by Capt. A. H. Macdonald, M.C, 
Forres. It is a list of the casualties sustained by the Battalion during the War, and also gives in 
detail the principal engagements and periods of duty in the line. This statement has been prepared 
from the Official Casualty Lists and from the War Diaries now in possession of the Record Office 
at Perth. The total of fatal casualties and their allocation between the various periods may be 
regarded as accurate : the casualties of wounded are only approximately correct as there are no 
records of officers and men who were wounded and remained at duty or who were wounded and 
remained in France. It reveals more strikingly than words can express what a terrible toll was 
taken of our brave county regiment. Total killed and wounded, 160 officers and 3,765 men : 
strength at embarkation 965 ; number who enlisted during the war 4,076. Truly, the 6th Seaforth 
Highlanders were not spared. They were a real " fighting regiment " that will live in history as 
a leading unit of those famous Storm-troops of the 51st. These figures make us marvel, not so 
much at the casualties, as at the few who escaped death or wounds. It will be noticed that on 
two different occasions, at Arras and during the final advance, about one-half of the ordinary 
strength of the battalion was killed or wounded : —

So far, I have confined this historical narrative to the 6th Seaforths, representing as they did, 
almost the only evidence of militarism in modern Moray since the early days of volunteering down 
to the present time. Throughout all those peaceful years of indifference and often derision this 
county battalion in its various phases has been the nucleus that kept alive whatever interest 



xii FOREWORD 

survived in military training, and fostered that ancient spirit of our forefathers which, when 
the dread hour came, " stirred our patriot embers into flame of ardent glow." 

What of the men of the Seaforth line ? — they never yet said " Nay " — 
Worthy the Clan whose name they bear, and its slogan " Caber-feidh " — 
They always stood when called to stand : they ne'er refused to go 
Where hell-fire raged, and bayonets gleamed, to meet the deadly foe. 

But this Roll of Honour is a record of the activities of Moray men in every field of service, and 
a glance at the biographical details will show the great variety of channels through which natives 
of the county served their King and Country in the Great War. Moray has always been a prolific 
nursery for emigration and her sons came flocking to the standard from all parts of the world. 
They and their descendants fought in the ranks of the brave Canadians, the brilliant Australians, 
and the steadfast New Zealanders, and many gave up lucrative positions in foreign lands to join the 
home forces. There are few Morayshire families that have not got relatives in Canada, and often 
while reading of the heroic exploits of the Canadian forces did our hearts swell with pride, knowing 
full well that they were to a large extent the boys of our Scottish race fighting under another banner. 
Nor can we forget the noble parts played by our sturdy and gallant fishermen of the Moray Firth. 
They preferred to keep to their natural element, the sea, and their services in the Fleet, in the Royal 
Naval Reserve, and as mine-sweepers were grand and glorious. It seems incongruous somehow to 
think of fishermen as kilted Highlanders, but, when men were wanted, some of them had to join the 
Seaforths. They did not altogether relish so much marching, but in time they became excellent 
soldiers of the line and it will not be forgotten that one of the Morayshire V.C.'s and a brilliant 
D.S.O. came from the coast town of Lossiemouth. 

As before mentioned, the local Squadron of the Scottish Horse assembled at Elgin on the 
outbreak of war to prepare for proceeding to their station. For some years previously this mounted 
Corps had gone into camp in Perthshire for their annual training under the Marquis of Tullibardine. 
They were a fit, active body of yeomanry, many of them farmers' sons and well accustomed to 
horses. It was no light task to equip the squadron on such short notice, and the best light horses 
in the county and neighbourhood were requisitioned for that purpose. In a short time, however, 
they were able to depart to Scone and proceeded afterwards to York and other places in England 
to undergo training. But it was early seen that mounted troops were not to play a prominent 
part in this War, and greatly to their disappointment the Scottish Horse had to part with their 
horses in August, 1915, and were packed off with their saddles to Egypt and the Gallipoli Peninsula, 
where they served as a Brigade of three regiments under the command of Brigadier Lord Tulli- 
bardine. In Gallipoli they took part in several engagements, and the Scottish Horse was the last 
Brigade to leave Suvla Bay. The Moray Squadron numbered 120 to 130 all told when they went 
to Gallipoli but when they left for Egypt in December, 1915, the number had been reduced to 
between twenty and thirty officers and men. After a short rest at Alexandria they were transferred 
to Cairo for three months and afterwards to the Suez Canal Defence, where they were stationed 
about six months. While there they were incorporated with an Infantry Battalion, the 13th 
Black Watch, with permission to wear the Atholl bonnet and Scottish Horse numerals. After a 
short period of infantry training they were despatched to Salonica where they remained from 
March, 1918, until their removal to France when they formed part of the 50th Division under 
the command of General Jackson. During the final push and advance, the Battalion took part in 
the stiffest engagements, including the taking of Le-Cateau in which they suffered great loss. 
But this was recognised as such a fine performance that it is well to record the high praise they 
xeceived from that great fighting Corps Commander, Lord Rawlinson, in the following personal 
note to their leader, Tullibardine, now Duke of Atholl : — 

" Yesterday I had occasion to visit your splendid Battalion of Scottish Horse, ' 13th Royal 
*' Highlanders,' in the 50th Division in order to compliment them on their fine attack and capture 



FOREWORD 



xm 



" of Le-Cateau station on the 18th inst. They were looking magnificent and I was glad to hear 
" that a draft was on its way to join them so as to replace their losses. 

" The attack of the station was a very fine performance and less determined troops would 
" hardly have succeeded. I went over the ground myself the other day and so struck was I with 
" the strength of the hostile position and the great gallantry displayed by the Scottish Horse in 
" the capture of it, that I went personally to the Battalion to thank them, for they deserved it. 
" I cannot often find time to do this, but Scotland has done so much towards winning this War 
" that I always do what I can to show them how much we appreciate their services." 

The fact that the highest percentage of voluntary enlistments early in the war, was credited 
to the North of Scotland, is due I have claimed, to the antecedents and fighting instincts of the 
race. It is to the undying honour of Morayshire that in 1914, with a battalion of infantry over 
1,000 strong and a squadron of yeomanry of 140, it furnished, as was freely mentioned at the time 
more men for the local forces in proportion to its population than any other county in Great Britain. 
We can make a further claim which, substantiated by figures, proves that the sons of Moray were 
heroes in the fight. The number of decorations awarded to Morayshire greatly exceeds the average 
for the United Kingdom. I am indebted to Mr. John B. Mair, M.V.O., O.B.E., Chief Constable of 
the County, for the following list of decorations awarded to Morayshire men and women, which he 
has compiled from the returns : —

Assuming that the population of the United Kingdom is 45,000,000 and that the 
population of this County is 43,000, Morayshire's quota of awards should be : — V.C.'s 
.5, D.S.O.'s 8.5, M.C.'S 35.3, D.C.M.'s 23.4, and M.M.'s no, whereas the awards received 
by Morayshire men and women exceed these numbers by : — V.C.'s 1.5, D.S.O.'s 5.5, 
M.C.'s 22.7, D.C.M.'s 45.6, and M.M.'s 99. 



It would be a fascinating task to record instances of personal heroism that would live in the 
minds of future generations. But the policy of secrecy pursued in the Great War was responsible 
for hiding such incidents from public knowledge, and it would be invidious to attempt to lift that 
veil even though we could appraise the relative distinction of the many deeds of bravery. It has 
been written, " The world knows nothing of its greatest men," and the same may be said of our 
brave soldiers. Those who received decorations do not comprise all " the heroes of the fight." 
Many men, equally deserving, have been left unrecognised because their daring deeds were not made 
known, or their claims not put forward by superior officers. It is well that the public should under- 



xiv FOREWORD 

stand this, and in perusing this Roll of Honour, think of the soldiers of our county as one undivided 
unit of devotion to duty, where the honour of one is the glory of all. 

But we must not fail to mention the outstanding fact which all Moray men will regard with 
pride that two natives of the county were awarded the greatest military distinction of all — the 
Victoria Cross, and a third was recommended for the same honour but got the D.S.O. instead. 
It is fitting that their photographs appear in the Roll of Honour. Alas ! they have paid the 
penalty, but the record of their fearless bravery will endure. 

Sergeant Alexander Edwards was the son of a Lossiemouth fisherman. He joined the regiment 
of his native county, the 6th Seaforths, on 1st September, 1914, and after training, proved himself 
a most capable soldier, always ready to volunteer for any dangerous work and to carry it through 
with cool judgment. He won the V.C. by a deed described as of " most conspicuous braver y in 
attack, when having located a hostile machine gun in a wood, he, with great dash and courage, led 
some men against it, killed all the team, and captured the gun. Later, though wounded, he crawled 
out, and killed, single-handed, a sniper who was causing casualties. Again, when only one officer was 
left, he led forth his company regardless of his wound and captured an objective of great import- 
ance." Truly, Edwards was a sterling soldier — brave as a lion. Not once but repeatedly did he go 
forth to take the greatest risk and it is officially stated " although twice wounded on the following 
day this very gallant N.C.O. maintained throughout, a complete disregard for personal safety and 
his high example of coolness and determination engendered a fine fighting spirit in his men." 
Sergeant Edwards was publicly presented with a gold watch and a purse with War Bonds by the 
inhabitants of his native Lossiemouth on 4th October, 1917. He returned to France, and was 
reported wounded and missing after 25th March, 191 8. 

The other V.C. winner was Corporal William Anderson, a native of Dallas, whose parents once 
resided at Forres. He had served seven years in the Army in Egypt and India and when war 
broke out was called up as a Reservist, attached to the 2nd Battalion (Alexandra, Princess of 
Wales's Own) Yorkshire Regiment. A glance at his photograph will reveal an exceptionally fine- 
looking young man with clear-cut features and fearless eyes — a bright, alert personality. This is 
borne out by the decisive action which won him the V.C. He was awarded the coveted trophy for 
most conspicuous bravery at the great battle of Neuve Chapelle on 12th March, 1915, when he " led 
" three men with bombs against a large party of the enemy who had entered our trenches, and by 
" his prompt and determined action saved, what might otherwise have become, a serious situation. 
*' Corporal Anderson first threw his own bombs, then those in possession of his three men (who 
" had been wounded) amongst the Germans, after which he opened rapid rifle fire upon them with 
" great effect, notwithstanding that he was at the time quite alone." Truly a lion-hearted Moray 
man of whom we should all feel proud — this true Scotsman, so prompt in action and resource, so 
exciting the admiration of the English regiment to which he was attached, that he was thought 
worthy of being entered on the inner Roll of Heroes even after his death. The V.C. was a post- 
humous award, for after Neuve Chapelle he was reported wounded and missing, and though his 
relatives hoped he had been taken prisoner and might return, that hope has not been realised. 

Another incident should be mentioned, because it was announced in mostly all newspapers 
at the time as one of the most singular instances of courage and coolness that had been known 
in the War. It was not then stated who was the hero of this episode, but afterwards it became 
known that the young officer was a Morayshire man and a native of Lossiemouth — Lieut. George 
E. Edwards of the 6th Seaforths. This officer was awarded the D.S.O. on 13th February, 
1917, for " conspicuous gallantry in action." Accompanied by a few men he advanced through 
our barrage and held the entrance of a cave in which there were about 400 Germans. With rare 
effrontery and courage he called in a loud voice for their instant surrender, and the enemy, thinking 
he was well-supported, regarded themselves as his prisoners. But after a little while it became 
evident to the German officers that this young fellow was acting on his own account and had no 
^supports, so they turned the tables upon him and suggested that he should become their prisoner 



FOREWORD xv 

instead ! So Edwards seeing no help near was compelled to surrender to them. Later on, however, 
supports appeared when the tables were turned again and Lieut. Edwards secured his prisoners 
and he himself proudly marched twelve of them, including their Battalion Commander, back to 
Battalion Headquarters. This cool and daring action reads like a page of romantic history and 
well might the official notice state " he set a splendid example of courage and determination 
throughout." Lieut. Edwards had enlisted early in the war as a private but his fine military 
qualities soon won recognition and in March, 1916, he received a Commission on the field. He 
performed other acts of valour and was mentioned in Sir Douglas Haig's despatch of 9th April, 1917, 
but was subsequently killed. Lieut. -Col. Graham, M.C., who was for some time in command of 
the 6th Seaforths at a meeting of the Moray and Banffshire Society in Glasgow, has paid a high 
tribute to the memory of this brave man. He said that " but for the bravery of Lieut. G. E. 
Edwards, Lossiemouth, the 51st Division would probably have failed in November, 1916, to take 
Beaumont Hamel. In the whole of the records of the late war, where acts of great bravery were 
so common, he did not believe there was a braver action than that of the late Lieut. Edwards. He 
had been recommended for the Victoria Cross, but for some reason unknown to him the lesser 
honour of the D.S.O. was all that was conferred, an honour which he regretted to say that brave 
officer did not live to enjoy." 

So, those three heroic men responsible for such outstanding feats of bravery, laid down their 
lives for their country, but their memory will be enshrined in this Roll of Honour, as it will be in 
the hearts of all true men of Moray throughout the rolling years. 

*********** 

It is desirable to place on record the means by which this volume has been compiled. At a 
meeting of Representatives appointed by the County Council of Morayshire and the Town Councils 
of the Burghs within the County, held at Elgin on 25th November, 1918, it was resolved to prepare 
a Roll of Honour for Morayshire " so that future generations might know the part that the County 
had borne in the War." A circular asking for personal details was issued, signed by the Convener 
of .the County, Mr. G. R. Mackessack, and the County Clerk, Mr. E. D. Jameson, and it 
was arranged : — 

That the proposed Roll of Honour should not supersede in any way or interfere with 
County, Parish, or other Memorials. 

That the Roll of Honour should be as comprehensive as possible, and should include : — 

(a) Persons born in Morayshire, whether enlisted through a local, imperial, or colonial 

Force. 

(b) Persons born elsewhere, but who had settled in Morayshire prior to the outbreak 

of the War, or prior to their joining up. 

(c) Persons who at any time were long connected with the County, but had since left 

the County and enlisted elsewhere. 

That the Roll of Honour should consist essentially of all persons who had trained for 
service and gone abroad, including Labour Battalions and Nurses — special cases to be specially 
dealt with — but that a Supplementary List might be made up of those with approved service 
at home, including V.A.D. Nurses, but excluding Volunteers and National Guards. 

It was resolved to ask Mr. John B. Mair, Chief Constable, with the aid of the Constabulary 
and Special Constables, to collect the necessary particulars. Mr. Mair in a letter to his officers 
throughout the county said he " considered it an honour to be entrusted with this work " and hoped 
that each member of the force would give his time and attention to make this Roll of Honour as 
complete as possible. Officers in charge of stations were required to divide their beats into small 
sub-areas and by the co-operation of special constables arrange for the delivery and collection of 
the forms. These were filled in and returned by the end of February, 1919. By this organisation 
all the households of the county have been reached and the details verified by officers on the spot. 
Mr. Mair carried through the work with rare enthusiasm and devotion to detail, and it has been a 



xvi FOREWORD 

labour of love to him and his assistants to endeavour to make the returns complete, for the honour 
of the County. It is with pleasure that I put on record the services that Mr. Mair has given so 
willingly to the compilation of this Roll. Some omissions may unwittingly have been made, and 
it has been difficult to get at others whose friends have left the county, but the precaution was 
taken to send proofs of the Roll to lie in each burgh and parish for examination by anyone inter- 
ested, so that residents of the county must blame themselves if any of their friends have suffered 
through error or omission. In all, more than 7,500 forms have been dealt with, and it has been no 
light task to edit the information they conveyed and put it into concise and consecutive order 
as a brief biography of each person, alphabetically arranged. To produce such a large and unique 
volume at the nominal price charged for it was impossible. But appeals were made to the public 
and subscription lists opened throughout the county which met with a liberal response. This 
has enabled the Committee to achieve their aim and offer the Roll of Honour at such a price, that 

no family, however poor, may be unable to obtain a copy. 

*********** 

Our brave boys of Moray though reared in peace, did not flinch when the dread call of duty 
came. They went forth to battle, like tried warriors, proud of the race they sprang from, determined 
to uphold its traditions, anxious to live for home and country but ready to die, standing shoulder 
to shoulder in support of one ideal, without distinction of birth or station. " Thrice is he armed 
that hath his quarrel just," and it cannot be doubted that this firm conviction buoyed up many a 
faltering spirit in the face of danger and of death. We try to analyse the feelings of the living : 
we are apt to overlook the thoughts of the dying. We may surmise, but little do we know the 
feelings and the agonies of many a poor fellow as he lay wounded on a foreign battle-field, far from 
home and kin — many a devoted mother's son, of whom the only legend that remains is a little 
wooden cross " Somewhere in France." But his fellows who saw their comrades fall must have 
known something of all this. Yet they never gave in. They developed a cool, imperturbable 
spirit that did not pale before a probable fate. A distinguished General recently said " Forty-eight 
" hours ago I was motoring across the Somme battlefield when I saw an old post lying at the foot 
" of a trench. Everything else in that shattered region had disappeared but the inscription it 
" bore strangely enough survived — ' All pessimists will be shot.' " It was this spirit of cheerful 
devotion and confidence that made it possible for our countrymen to face every trial, and emerge 
victorious in the end. And as they fought side by side on the field of battle, what could be more 
fitting than that their names should stand side by side without precedence of rank or position — the 
living and the dead — in the Roll of Honour ? There are other local Memorials — monuments of 
stone erected in public places — testimonies of our county's gratitude — but I venture to say that no 
memorial will be more prized than this Roll of Honour, which brings a personal touch within the 
homes of the County that could not be so well supplied by any other means. It is the practical 
outcome of an excellent idea that does credit to those who conceived it. We all remember the 
familiar device which did service so often during the period of enlistment. It represented the little 
boy in after years asking of his father, " And what did you do, Daddie, in the Great War ? " The 
answer is here supplied. Each man who responded to his country's call can simply point to his 
name in the Morayshire Roll of Honour — a silent yet eloquent testimony to his own and 
his children's children. 

Grateful Moray ! Grateful Moray ! 
Can you e'er forget their deeds ? 
No — we never shall forget them — the men who fought and won — 
As soon expect that mother's heart could e'er forget her son ! 
The heroes died that we might live — and we live in Freedom's name 
To crown them with the laurel leaves of their immortal fame ; 
Their names inscribed on Honour's Roix, these pages now adorn, 
They shall be read with pride by kin, and generations yet unborn ! 

Nether Birnie, near Elgin, 1921. William J. McKenzie.
