Royal Scots Fusiliers Medals



The Royal Scots Fusiliers was founded in 1678. They fought against the Jacobites in the Battle of Colluden in 1746. The most notable honours of the regiment are the battles of Dettingen, Inkeerman and Gheluvelt in 1914. They also aquired numerous honours from the Boer, First and Second World Wars.

There were several notable officers in the regiment including Lord Trenchard, who founded the Royal Air Force and Sir Winston Churchill, who commanded the 8th Battalion for a few months on the Western Front in 1915.

The regiment continued to serve until 1959, when it was amalgamated with The Highland Light Infantry to form the Royal Highland Fusiliers.
