Introduction: a global force: war, identities and Scotland’s diaspora

4 April 2016

Abstract

This introduction provides an overview of the phenomenon of military Scottishness in four key nations: Australia, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand, as well as the often neglected ‘near diaspora’ of England. It highlights the potency and successful export of Scottish martial identity since the latter half of the nineteenth century, they also explore how the outward expression of military Scottishness related to competing national and cultural identities within the new areas of settlement. It also illuminates the close ties between Scottish military identity and Scottish associational culture.
