The pipes and drums of the Black Watch

-A A +A

The War of the Austrian Succession brought The Black Watch its first Battle Honor, at the Battle of Fontenoy in 1745. Shortly afterward, it distinguished itself at the Battle of Ticonderoga during the French and Indian War.
At 7:30 p.m. March 11, the Santa Fe Concert Association presents the pipes and drums of the Black Watch, 3rd Battalion of the Royal Scottish Regiment, at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W. San Francisco St., Santa Fe.
Although The Black Watch participated in many battles during the Revolutionary War, it clams no honor for these engagements against its American cousins. The red tackle or plume, which the Regiment considers a Battle Honor, was awarded in 1795. During the 19th century, The Black Watch served all over the world. The Regiment raised 27 battalions for service on all fronts during World War I. Its Battle Honors for the Great War include the Marne, Ypres and the Somme.
The Regiment’s service since World War I has sent it to Borneo, Korea (where it fought with the U.S. Marine Corps at “The Hook”), several tours in Germany and, most recently, Hong Kong.
Today,The Black Watch continues to serve as a fully operational Battalion in the modern British Army.
