On 1st July 1881 Viscount Cardwell's wholesale reorganisation of the
British Army brought into existence Priness Louise's Argyll and Sutherland
Highlanders. Both had existed as separate regiments even before their official
incorporation into the British Army and on the face of it, this seemed a highly
improbable union, Being separated both geographically and historically - they
had never even served together in the same theatre. Yet, as history has shown,
this unlikely combination proved to be a tremendous success. William McElwee
tells the story of this most famous of regiments which has served with
distinction in two world wars and beyond. Contents: The Origins of the Regiment
