Records of the Scottish Volunteer Force, 1859-1908
By Maj.-Gen. J. M. Grierson (1909)

This is a rare work which includes a general account of the origin and history of the military units raised in the dates cited, primarily to serve throughout the empire, from just after the Crimean War into Africa and the Boer War. It includes Light Horse, Mounted Rifles, Artillery, Engineers, and Territorial Regiments such as the Roxburgh and Selkirk, the Berwickshire Volunteers, the Dumfries Volunteer  Battalion, the Perthshire, Fifeshire, and Renfrewshire, as well as Rifle Corps, and the Medical Units. The uniqueness of the work, however, is in the color plates which illustrate the uniforms, with as near absolute accuracy as possible. There are some 47 beautiful full-color plates, showing both kilted and non-kilted units.
