The Liverpool Scottish was the 10th Battalion of the King's (Liverpool) Regiment, a Territorial battalion. The battalion landed in France in November 1914, one of the earliest to join the British Expeditionary Force, and later that month is joined the 9th Brigade, 3rd Division, a regular army formation of the original British Expeditionary Force, remaining with it to the end of 1915.
