My thanks go to SCS member Harry Fecitt who provided an article about 1/12th Battalion (Pioneers) The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment in Macedonia, which recently appeared here as part of our online commemorations of the First Battle of Doiran:

I am pleased to bring to your attention a further article by Harry which can be found online at the Kaiser’s Cross website:

This battalion was part of 65th Brigade, 22nd Division and served in Macedonia from 1915 to 1919, taking part in both Battles of Doiran (1917 and 1918).

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and soon after became editor of the Society's journal, 'The New Mosquito', a role he held until 2008. He then became the Society's web editor, a role he seems unable to shake off. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915-1917, mainly in the Struma valley.
