Regimental Journal

Saluting the men of the past

It is our intention to publish historical articles that have appeared in the Regimental Journal, The Red Hackle. Many have been researched and written by men who have served in the Regiment. By doing so, we hope to describe the spirit and corporate life of this old and illustrious Regiment in both peace and war. The principal character, whose life and spirit animates the whole story is that of the soldier, the "Jock".The Red Hackle Publication

The Red Hackle Magazine was first published in April 1921 and, with the exception of the war years 1939-45, it has recorded the life of the Regiment since then. Over the years it has developed and evolved and readers may order copies by The Black Watch Assoication.

The Magazine has evolved over the years but it is now published in May and November each year. The electronic version of the magazine will be placed on The Black Watch Association page of the website two months after the publication date.
