BOOK - THE CLAN MACRAE, WITH ITS ROLL OF HONOUR

The Clan MacRae, with its Roll of Honour and of Service in the Great War
by Ella MacRae-Gilstrap

The book starts with a History of the Clan and of Eilean Donan Castle with excellent illustrations of our Clan Badges and Tartans. It then lists the names of the 423 MacRaes who gave their lives in the Great War, many with photographs and details of their service and their Regiments. It also lists the 3624 Men and Women from our Clan who served in the Great War, including MacRaes from the Commonwealth and from America. More than 50% of MacRae Pipers who served in the War lost their lives.

Book is hardback, 256 pages. First published by Rosemount Press in Aberdeen in 1924 with a second edition the following year.

This book is very rare, and copies when they do come up for sale can command prices of hundreds of pounds. A copy sold early 2007 on e-Bay (see Rare MacRae book on e-Bay) sold for £285.
