SpanglefishHawick and the Great War 1914-1918 | sitemap | log in


In 2018, under the auspices of Hawick Archaeological Society, a new history of Hawick and the Great War will be published.

To this end can I take this opportunity to ask anyone for original documentation from the time which may still exist.

I am looking for letters, diaries, postcards and photographs relating to those from Hawick and district who fought in the First World War. I already have access to the old book ‘Hawick & The War’, so don’t require this but any other items would be well received.

All contributions will be fully acknowledged in the new book and safely returned.


I can be contacted at

Thank you.
