Scotland has a long and unique military heritage that stretches way beyond World War I when the traditions of tartan, kilt and bagpipes became intrinsic emblems of Scottish identity.

Local territorial forces played significant roles in community life, particularly in rural areas, and this shared heritage and national pride led to an estimated 688,000 Scotsmen enlisting during the war. The sacrifice of Scots who served with the British Army during World War I cannot be overstated, with almost a quarter losing their lives.
