WALKING WITH THE JOCKS
The Jocks – the men of the 52nd (Lowland) Division – had a reputation for being ‘hellish good’ during the Second World War. They trained well in the mountains of Scotland, and fought hard in the low countries of North West Germany.
In association with authors Andy Aitchenson and Merryn Walters, we have drawn on many years’ research and walking the ground to create two unique battlefield tours: WWTJ SOUTH and WWTJ NORTH.
In particular, we follow the route taken by the 4th Battalion, King’s Own Scottish Borderers from October ’44 to May ’45. From the diary pages of ‘With the Jocks’, written by Captain Peter White, our itinerary for WWTJ SOUTH takes us from the Roer Triangle to the Rhineland, while our schedule for WWTJ NORTH crosses the Rhine to explore the ambushes and attacks that led to the battle for Bremen.
