The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall joined with Scotland's first minister, veterans and serving soldiers at a service to commemorate 100 years since one of the biggest battles of the First World War. An estimated 21,000 British soldiers died in the Battle of Loos in 1915, about 7,000 of whom were Scottish. A large number of casualties were from the Dundee-based 4th Black Watch. Prince Charles and Camilla joined about 1,000 people at a service in the city to pay their respects. The prince is the Royal Colonel of the 3rd Battalion (The Black Watch), The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
