In March 1915 the 2 Battalion fought at Neuve Chapelle, with the 1 Battalion in reserve, in May the 2 Battalion fought at Festubert. The battles at both Neuve Chapelle and Festubert were both costly failures as the British troops were decimated by machine gun and artillery fire. On the 27 of September 1915 the British attacked at Loos, the 1 Battalion was in the second wave attacking the German trenches at the Keep and Puits14. The 2 Battalion took part in a Brigade attack on Hill 70 and after taking their objective they consolidated the new line close to the Germans. The Scots Guards were then relieved on the 30 of November, but on the 8 of October were rushed into the line to hold an enemy counter-attack.
