Royal Scots - Other Rank PoWs 1914


Here's another list of men; this time Royal Scots who were captured by the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. There are 223 men here, the equivalent of two companies under the old eight-company system. For these men, capture may have been a blessing in disguise, sparing them the rigours and dangers of trench warfare but at the same time condemning them to years of imprisonment and poor treatment. Their soldiering experience was certainly a loss to their country.

These Royal Scots prisoners of war are catalogued under two series held at the Imperial War Museum:

B.O.2 1/290 is a 5-page typed list of Royal Scots Prisoners of War submitted on the January 1919 by The Royal Scots Association
B.O.2 1/292 is a 5-page typed list of Royal Scots Prisoners of War submitted on the 18th January 1919 by the Lt-Colonel i/c Infantry Records, No 2 District

Most of the men listed here appear on both of the above lists which, additionally, gives home addresses or next of kin details for the majority. For more information about these so-called 'Princess Mary tin PoWs' see my 1914 PoWs page. The majority of these men will also have records published by the International Committee of the Red Cross. Searching is free; finding your man is another matter entirely.

Remember. I research soldiers!
