Join us for the final session of our 2022 Lecture Series!

Drawing on the feats of Scottish soldiers, notably those of the 52nd Lowland Division, this talk focuses on the success achieved by Allenby's Expeditionary Force that fought from the Battle of Gaza to Aleppo between September 1917 and November 1918.

It is a remarkable story because, unlike that of any other theatre of operations in the Great War, it was a notable success. For the most part it was executed by members of the Territorial Force together with troops from across the Empire, including the ANZACs and the Indian Army. The Palestine Campaign was one of high manoeuvre warfare supported by a remarkable logistical effort. Leading to the successful conquest of the Levant, the outcome of this campaign has had a lasting impact on the Middle East to this day.

The speaker, Colonel AK Miller CBE, served for 34 years in The Argylls. He finished his career as the British Defence Attache in Israel between 2003-2007 and has subsequently led a battlefield tour tracing Allenby's Campaign.

The lecture will take place in the atmospheric surroundings of the Museum Colours Room at 11am. This room is on the 2nd Floor and is accessible via 2 flights of stairs.
