How do you like the Scotties?

My latest lovely little purchase for $8.  I was fascinated to see these soldiers piping their way back from the Trenches - I've not seen any postcards of the Scots in WW1. I think it's a smashing picture! "Our gallant Highlanders, who love to charge the enemy to the skirl of the pipes are fond of playing their national music in lighter mood, as seen in this picture."

They look well in their kilts.  I have seen thousands of them marching here in France Your loving cousin[?] Reg Douglas is but a blip on the landscape. ©2013
