Reading the NewsReading the Breaking News

With events and publications of books and articles it is almost impossible to have missed the fact that 2014 is the centenary anniversary of the outbreak of World War One. We can all look forward to a number of years of reflection, commemoration, and review of those events which mark the beginning of the 20th Century. Not to be outdone, the Regiment has also become involved in a number of activities to commemorate the anniversary.

The Regimental family visited Hooge in June 2015 to commemorate the battalion's 'battle' on 16th June 1915. Several 'Liverpool Scottish' coaches travelled to Ypres/Ieper. A report of the event by Mike Gavin can be read HERE.

The Trust has selected a collection of images from its archive to form a ready-made display for public and private events. If you wish you can see a slide show preview. HERE

Major Ian Riley has produced a number of articles recounting story of the Territorial Forces in the First World War for the VOLUNTEER, the magazine for Reservists in the North West. 

You can read the collected VOLUNTEER ARTICLES here.

The General awareness surrounding the centenary with the First World War and the enquires that generated has unearthed a number of interesting personnel stories of the men who served in the Liverpool Scottish during that time. A number of these PERSONAL STORIES are told here.
