http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-32456223 includes:
"There were many, many Scots units involved in the Gallipoli campaign.

"You had the King's Own Scottish Borderers who were part of the 29th division, and also the 32nd Lowland division, so they played their part fully, both in the initial stages of the campaign and later on as reinforcements.

"You also had other units like the Royal Scots. They served in the 32nd Lowland Division. They, particularly, lost 214 officers and men in the Quintinshill rail disaster whilst deploying to Gallipoli."

Oh dear oh dear another bit of sloppy reporting from the BBC.

The Breakfast News report from Gallipoli had half a million casualties!
