Description
 
Authoritative and completely up-to-date, the regiment-by-regiment survey traces the origins and history of Scotlandís fighting men, from their organization in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries through to their participation in the campaigns in the Falklands and the Gulf. Beautifully illustrated with archive and contemporary images, the authorís lively and informative text look beneath the dry, technical descriptions of uniforms and military hardware to uncover the traditions, character and individuality of the Scottish regiments, past and present. For each regiment, details are given of:

  • Regimental history
  • Regimental badge and motto
  • Tartans and clan affiliations
  • Battle honours and Victoria Cross winners
  • Regimental music and toasts
  • Allied and affiliated regiments
  • The text of this second edition reflect the regimental amalgamations and other organisational changes that affected the Scottish Division in the early 1990s.
