World War One Audit of Surviving Remains (20 June 2013)

Keith, Union Street (formerly Cross Street) drill hall, is marked on the 2nd edition OS map and is still in use (extended) as a Territorial Army centre. Described by Osborne (2006) as a complicated group of structures with a hall (with bellcote) adjoining a two-storey administration block. The hall bears the badge of the Gordon Highlanders. In 1914-18 the hall was the drill station for “E” Squadron, 2nd Scottish Horse, the HQ of the 6th Battalion Gordon Highlanders, and the drill station for “C” Company of the battalion.
