Old Photograph Seaforth Highlanders Carnwath Scotland


Old photograph of Seaforth Highlanders riding through Carnwath on the southern edge of the Pentland Hills thirty miles South of Edinburgh, and Glasgow, Scotland. The Seaforth Highlanders was a historic line infantry regiment of the British Army, mainly associated with large areas of the northern Highlands of Scotland. The regiment existed from 1881 to 1961, and saw service in World War I and World War II, along with many numerous smaller conflicts. In 1961 the regiment was amalgamated with the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders to form the Queen's Own Highlanders, Seaforth and Camerons, which merged, in 1994, with the Gordon Highlanders to form the Highlanders, Seaforth, Gordons and Camerons. This, however, later joined the Royal Scots Borderers, the Black Watch, the Royal Highland Fusiliers, Princess Margaret's Own Glasgow and Ayrshire Regiment, and the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders to create the present Royal Regiment of Scotland.
