From every town, village and settlement in Argyll and Bute volunteers signed on. Young men whose families had been part of the diaspora returned to their homeland to do the same.
For many, the 8th Battalion of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, which formed in Dunoon, was their destination, but volunteers from Argyll and Bute were represented widely throughout the services and saw action in every theatre.
The Argylls in Mons and Marne, Italy and Gaza
The Royal Garrison Artillery in The Balkans and Gallipoli
The Gordon Highlanders in The Somme
