“The mascot of the Royal Scots”
French Flanders, France, WWI, 1914-1918
“A young soldier of the Royal Scots Regiment holding a black goat kid. As the French farmers were forced to flee their homes many animals were inevitably abandoned. Some undoubtedly ended up in the cooking pot, but others like this kid seem to have been adopted as good luck mascots.
The Royal Scots raised 35 battalions during World War I, of which 15 were on overseas service. The Regiment not only served in the Western Front, but also in the Dardanelles, Macedonia, Egypt and Northern Russia.”
