I’ve only recently found out that this building was once the drill hall of the Dundee Territorial Army.
The Black Watch Territorials were formed in 1908 with Dundee making up the 4th Battalion along with the Angus, Perth and Fife divisions they forged their reputations in France and Flanders during the Great War.
Although I didn’t know this was formerly the home of the Dundee territorials I have actually been in the building way back in the olden times staggering around drunk looking for a sympathetic doorman to allow me passage to a nightclub. Which this building has been for some years……I was only in it the once though haha!
