48th Edinburgh Company

"I think this photo was taken just off the Cowgate.

It's the 48th Edinburgh Company whose captain can be seen with black moustache. He was Captain Hugh Craig MC who won his Military Cross in the First World War.

The HQ of the company was the Church of Scotland Shelter just off the Cowgate."

Jim added:

48th and 59th Edinburgh Companies

"I originally came from Musselburgh.  It was during that time that I became involved with the 48th Coy BB, as they used to come camping with my company, 59th Edin. (Musselburgh) Coy during the 1960s and into the 1970s.

Captain Hugh Craig

It was Captain Hugh Craig who I recognised in the photo; a real captain in WW1."
