World War I
The commune was liberated from German occupation by 5th/6th Battalion, Scottish Rifles, on 9 October 1918. The Place de la Mairie was renamed Place des Ecossais in their honour. When King George V visited Clary in November 1918, the same battalion was drawn up in the place to welcome him. Among those liberated was a British soldier who had been in hiding since the Battle of Le Cateau in August 1914.
