Tyneside Scottish

Front Cover
Pen and Sword, Jan 12, 1998 - History - 256 pages
Although called the Tyneside Scottish, very few of the men who made up this Brigade were of Scottish descent. Many came from local villages or were from the Northumberland pits. They saw action at the Battle of the Somme and after it were allowed to put tartan behind their cap badges because of their bravery.
