We are a living history group, who re-create as accurately as possible the life of the Highland soldier during the Great War. We are available for heritage and commemorative events, mainly in Scotland and northern England, and can also undertake school visits. We can provide an authentic camp-site, where we demonstrate the uniform and equipment of the soldiers, talk about the soldier's life and engage with the public generally about the war. We also do arena displays in which we normally demonstrate drill, uniform, weapons and kit, PT, gas and bayonet drill. On occasion we participate in full-scale battle re-enactments.
