| Recruitment and Conscription
A breakdown of all Cameron Highlander battalions during the Great War.
Army battalions were greatly expanded during the war to accommodate for the number of volunteers who were recruited.
Many territorial soldiers agreed to serve abroad despite the fact that they were only contracted for home defence.
Conscription was not introduced until two years into the war in 1916.
