A long line of soldiers from a Highland Regiment marching along a road. They are all wearing kilts and steel helmets, and are carrying rifles. They are being led by a kilted man on a horse. Most of the men have solemn faces. The road they are marching along has a steep bank of earth on both sides. On the left, at the top of bank, there is a line of soldiers watching as the troops march past. There is a camp visible in the background. In 1881 there was a restructuring of the British Army which included the creation of four distinct Highland Regiments; The Gordon Highlanders, The Queen’s Own Highlanders, The Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders and The Seaforth Highlanders. They were collectively known as The Highlanders.
