September 1915 saw the first massive Allied attack on the German positions at Loos, Belgium. The battle also marked the largest deployment of Scottish troops in nearly 200 years and was the first taste of action for men of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. In a moving excavation, the Trench Detectives recover the body of one of those Scottish soldiers, his shoulder badge identifying him as a Highlander. A leather pouch, at first believed to be his Sporran, holds the key to this man’s identity. Lab analysis reveals it as a kit of specialized equipment issued to specific men to perform a specific task. If his identity can be tracked down, this soldier can finally be laid to rest.
