The regiment or corps is the key administrative component of the British Army. Each has its own long history, traditions and insignia. To its soldiers, the regiment is a military family that provides comradeship and a unique identity.
Formed in 1915, this British Army regiment was composed of volunteers from the West Indies and served in various theatres of the First World War. It was disbanded in 1921, shortly after the conflict had ended.
This Scottish infantry regiment was raised in 1633, making it the oldest in British Army history. After 373 years' distinguished service, it was amalgamated into The Royal Regiment of Scotland in 2006.
