Reiver 2 Dunkirk remembered in song (27) RE: Dunkirk remembered in song 29 May 10

An interesting historical side-note for Guest,mg, who, in an earlier post to this thread, mentioned a "beautiful song" about the Highlanders as POWs after Dunkirk. According to Walter Lord the 1st Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders were holding the town of La Bassee during the retreat to Dunkirk. He says that "against regulations" they wore kilts and by doing so they became "the last Scottish regiment to wear kilts in action." During the "Great War" [WWI] the kilted Scots were referred to by German troops as "the Ladies From Hell."
