    Frank McFarland. . . his great nephew is my best friend. Frank was the last survivor of his RHR WWI battalion.

    I once saw a recruiting poster for the Regiment which said, "Join the Black Watch and Wear the Red Hackle." I have looked, in vain, for a reproduction of that poster or even a photograph of it. Does anyone know where it can be found?
