Race for French children | National Library Scotland

Access this resource

Young children taking part in a race at a Black Watch sports day. These children were very likely from a nearby village or town as members of the Black Watch look on. Coming into contact with civilians while serving at the Western Front probably brought thoughts of home and family to the fore for many men.

Original reads: ‘BRITISH OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPH FROM THE WESTERN FRONT. Black Watch hold sports whilst resting. A race for French children is never forgotten by Tommy.
