    Another fantastic trip away with McCrae’s Battalion Trust to the Somme, some fantastic places with truly amazing people, thank you to Tam Douglas and everyone who makes this pilgrimage possible year after year.

    A sad day when we all stopped to pay tribute to the late Lt Col Gary Tait MBE, when a letter was read out from a padre to a family of a Royal Scot who lost their son during WW1 which touched everyone’s heart.

    Anyone who would like to come alone on next year’s pilgrimage to the Somme with McCraes Battalion Trust should contact Tom Douglas or Jack Alexander or visit :- for more details.
