Under the Devil’s Eye

About Under the Devil’s Eye

Hear the incredible and forgotten story of the British Salonika Force and the role played by the Cameronians in the First Battle of Doiran. Fighting endemic malaria, wracked with dysentery, scorched by the blazing summer heat and always short of supplies, the Scots are faced with the terrible task of pushing the Bulgarians out of their mountain positions.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Under the Devil’s Eye are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
