 The Royal Regiment of Scotland

The Regimental Capbadge

 

INTRODUCTION


The Royal Regiment of Scotland is Scotland’s Infantry Regiment. Structured, equipped and manned for the 21st Century, we are fiercely proud of our heritage. Scotland has a tradition of producing courageous, resilient, tenacious and tough, infantry soldiers of world renown. The 5 regular and 2 territorial army battalions of the Regiment offer a variety of locations and challenging roles with an exciting career for any young man.


Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me! The Regiment traces its history to the raising of 14 Regiments in Scotland between 1633 and 1799. These 14 Regiments and their descendants have served Sovereign and Country uninterrupted to the present day. They have been known by different names and numbers, worn different uniforms, restructured when required and most recently came together as one Regiment on the 28th March 2006 -  373 years to the day after the first Scottish Regiment was raised.
