An eminent War Scot

Malcolm Noble traces the life of Earl Haig, one of the best known First World War military commanders and a Church of Scotland elder.


Statue of Earl Douglas Haig

FEW would doubt that Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig was a most eminent Scot in Great War London and in the years immediately following the Armistice. He was an elder at London: St Columba’s and after this death in 1928 his coffin lay in the church for three days while mourners processed past. The procession left St Columba’s for the state funeral at Westminster Abbey.

Sir Douglas Haig commanded the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) from December 10 1915 to April 2 1919. After the war he spent the remaining years of his life working in the interests of those who had returned from the war. In this he was assisted by Dorothy, Lady Haig. Doris, as she was known, made a powerful and lasting contribution in her own right, until her death in 1939.
