By Stuart Reid
Eventually, regiments are judged through their behaviour in conflict; and highlanders have consistently had a name as 'stormers', as exemplified via the impetuous cost of the Gordons at Waterloo, intermingled with the Scots greys. This acceptance most likely resulted at the very least partially from an surprisingly shut bonding among officials and males, and an assumption that highlanders have been ordinary squaddies, possessed of an impetuous spirit and temperamentally extra prone to take advantage of the bayonet. Complemented via many illustrations, together with 8 complete web page color plates through Bryan Fosten, Stuart Reid's enticing textual content examines the uniforms and company of Wellington's Highlanders.
