The Great War, I was there - Part 19

fi 1 k m H S 5 S 5!! astaS ?..Ll. THE KILT IE WINS THEIR FIGHT AND SLAKE THEIR T H SIR THere is a photograph full of the human touch. The bedraggled, mud-caked warriors, men of the 8th Black Watch, have just emerged from the battle of Bazentin Ridge, and with grimy, smiling faces, lineup outside the canteen to receive some very welcome refreshment. The inaction which they had taken a stirring part resulted in the hill-top village of Longueval falling into British hands on July 14,1916. Moving stealthily forward in the darkness, these Scottish lads approached Longueval, which had been seton fire, and in the smouldering ruins fought and drove out the remnant of the enemy garrison, which had put up a brave but fruitless resistance.
