Royal Scots Regimental Museum

The Royal Scots Regiment is the oldest regiment in the British Army. Raised on the 28th of March 1633, at first the unit served King Louis XIII in France and earned the Regiment the nickname of Pontius Pilate's bodyguard. It was finally recalled to Great Britain in 1676. The exhibition halls trace the history of the regiment: Corunna, Waterloo, Alma, Sebastopol, and the Marne... The medal section is impressive.
