£30.00 £4.99

The book tells the story of the formation and, in some cases, the decimation of the 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd Battalions of the Northumberland Fusiliers, better known simply as The Tyneside Scottish. The story is told, in chronological order so that we get some background on the area the men came from, the recruiting, training and finally service overseas. The Brigade saw service on the Somme in the Great War and this is the record of their service.
