Highlights from World War One
The sheer scale of the conflict in the Great War, and the enormous demand for men, transformed The Gordon Highlanders.
Between 1914 and 1918, the Regiment kept 9 Battalions on the Western Front. By the end of the war they had been awarded 65 new Battle Honours and suffered over 29,000 casualties, 9,000 of whom died. Almost every community and family in the North East, and many elsewhere, were affected.
