A remarkable artist’s sketch book has come to light in, I think, a house clearance.
I have been researching who the subjects might be and find that they were all in or serving with the Royal Highlanders (Black Watch) in Mesopotamia in 1916.
With a couple of exceptions, those whose portraits I have seen were either killed on wounded.
Embarked, Marseilles, 5th December, 1915.
