Many of us don’t really know what is hidden in the dark, dusty and cobwebbed corners of our attics, though when you finally have a look you might be surprised what you might find. A recent discovery that was given to Forces War Records to scan and digitise for our Historic Library is a superb illustrated album with a brief historical account of the services of the First Battalion Seaforth Highlanders Regiment in Peshawar, India 1909. It contains many fabulous images of the regiment’s officers, Sergeants, Bands, pipers, drummers, signallers, shooting teams and wonderful moustached gymnastic instructors and much more. Why not log on to Forces War Records and search our vast collection of records and see our ‘Historic Library’ to find out more about your own ancestor.
