I dont recall anyone telling him how it really is , we were simply discussing as to whether or not there are scottish units within the uk forces, try reading the thread at the beginning before you post.

Last year when I was in Afghanistan I saw one company of contracters an they were all wearing multicam.


The dude in the picture could be a contractor or member of a SOF unit like the British SFSG, etc
Very True Mate, That's why I said Generally...I have seen SF from several countries wearing Multicam as well. I was only making a point, but Paps seems to know this fellow or the pic in question. No worries though.

Way to contribute to the thread, Chico.

Anyway, As for scottish special units? I don't think they would get must distinction as i'm sure there are scottish regiments simply as an addition to the british army as a whole. I do have family in scotland I can reference to if needed. And Pipefitter is right~ We are tough Sonovabitches! I wouldn't be too surprised to see a kilt amongst all of that tactical gear fro time to time

If someone attached Molle strips to a kilt I'd wear it in combat. I wore one to a semi formal once. They get chilly.

The website for this new regiment: http://www.it-serve.co.uk/rros/index.php

That means no more:
Royal Scots
Black Watch (RHR)
Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (PL)
Royal Highland Fusilliers (PMOGAR)
Kings Own Scottish Borderers
The Highlanders (Seaforth, Gordon, and Cameronians)
Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

Now each regiment will in turn become a battalion of this new "super regiment".

The capbadge:
The motto translated means: "Noone invokes me with impunity" And is the same motto that the Order of the Thistle has used since the 1700's.
Do not worry. The Seaforth's name will not die. Despite the efforts of the Dod UK it will live on here in Canada.

By Special Scotish Units are you talking the SAS "Artists" Squadron? Because the Artists are primarly Scotish.

Made up of 70% Paras. Wherever the hell they come from. Not 70% Scots.
That said the Scot's are tough bastards and always will be.
