Scottish Military Tradition in Canada

Regiments bearing Scottish names, their ranks filled with men wearing the "bonnet, kilt, and feather" have played an important part in Canadian military history whether they fought as Scots in the British army with Wolfe, Amherst and Carleton in the 1750's through to the American Revolution, or as Scottish Canadians in defence of their own country.
