Transvaal Scottish – 1 st Battalion
“Formed in Johannesburg in 1902, the Transvaal Scottish (TS) is affiliated to the Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) and wears Murray of Atholl tartan. During World War I the TS took part in the invasion of German South-West Africa (in late 1914), where it was joined by 2TS, the original became 1TS. Following the conquest of German South-West Africa, 2TS was disbanded, while 1TS spent the remainder of the war in reserve. 2TS had been re-formed in 1936, and then at the outset of World War II, a 3rd battalion was raised. The war over, all 3 battalions were reconstituted in 1946, with the 3rd being converted to artillery as 7th Medium Regiment (3TS). But the latter was disbanded in at the end of 1959, when many members transferred to the TS. Earlier, in 1953, the 1st and 2nd battalions had been amalgamated.” Regimental Historian ~ James Mitchell
The Transvaal Scottish were also the only South African Regiment that had three battalions on the battlefront at any one time.
