Hearts FC: the football club which lost the most in WW1

No football club sacrificed more in the First World War than Heart of Midlothian. Sixteen players from the club joined up, most of them enlisting in the 16th Battalion of Royal Scots, the oldest infantry regiment in the army.

Nicky went to Tynecastle stadium to meet Jack Alexander - Director at McCrae's Battalion Trust and Author of McCrae's Battalion: The Story of the 16th Royal Scots.
