Wha daur meddle wi' us Scots..
Key moments in Scottish military history covered by regimental collections: ? Charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo: The cavalry charge by the Scots Greys at Waterloo is viewed as one of the defining moments of the battle in 1815. A quarter of Scots Greys died, and a quarter were wounded in the final battle of the Napoleonic Wars.? The Thin Red Line: In the Crimean War, at Balaklava, the 93rd Sutherland Highlanders won immortal fame when they formed a line in two ranks and repelled a charge of Russian cavalry.? World War I: Territorial forces played significant roles in community life and this shared heritage and national pride led to 688,000 Scots enlisting. Their sacrifice cannot be overstated, with almost a quarter dying. The men of the 51st Highland Division fought in some of the bloodiest battles, including the Somme, Festubert, Givenchy, Arras, Ypres and Cambrai.
