The Royal Regiment of Scotland is the senior and only Scottish line infantry regiment of the British Army Infantry. It consists of five regular and two territorial battalions, each formerly an individual regiment (with the exception of the first battalion, which is an amalgamation of two regiments).

History

As part of restructuring in the British Army, the Royal Regiment of Scotland's creation was announced by the Secretary of State for Defence, Geoff Hoon in the House of Commons on 16 December 2004, after the merger of several regiments and the reduction in total regular infantry battalions from 40 to 36 was outlined in the defence white paper, Delivering Security in a Changing World, several months earlier.

The regiment consists of a total of seven battalions: one of these was formed by the amalgamation of the Royal Scots and King's Own Scottish Borderers, while the others are each formed from one of the remaining single-battalion regiments of the Scottish Division. Along with The Rifles, it is currently the largest infantry regiment in the British Army. Of all of the new regiments formed following the announcement of 16 December 2004, the Royal Regiment of Scotland is the only one where the former regimental titles have been prominently retained with the new numbered battalion designations as subtitles. There is however a common regimental cap badge, tartan, stable belt and Glengarry headdress but distinctively coloured hackles are also worn by each separate battalion on the Tam o' Shanter headdress in order to maintain their individual identity and the pipes and drums of each battalion continue to wear the historic cap badges and tartans of their former regiments. Along with The Rifles, The Royal Regiment of Scotland is also one of only two line infantry regiments to maintain its own regular military band within the Corps of Army Music, which was formed through the amalgamation of the Highland band and Lowland band of the Scottish Division. In addition, there are two Territorial bands, The Band of 51st (Scottish) Brigade and The Lowland Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, which are administered by the regiment's two Territorial battalions. The regiment also has its own Parachute Display Team, the Golden Lions[1].

In 1948, every regiment of line infantry was reduced to a single battalion. The subsequent process of reducing the overall number of infantry battalions in the Army through downsizing or amalgamation of the traditional county regiments that were formalised in the Childers Reforms of 1881 to form larger multi-battalion regiments, has continued to affect most of the British Army Infantry since the 1957 Defence White Paper outlined the first mergers. The creation of the Royal Regiment of Scotland has encountered considerable opposition amongst both former soldiers and nationalist groups. It has been argued that the establishment of large regiments elsewhere in the British Army in the past, such as the Royal Green Jackets, quickly leads to a loss of separate identity amongst the constituent battalions as personnel are posted back and forward. The new regiment is also primarily a kilted one and there are concerns that the much older Lowland units, which traditionaly wore trews, will be effectively absorbed into a Highland ethos. However, the Ministry of Defence's case that change was necessary in order to enhance operational efficiency, improve conditions of service and to resolve chronic recruiting and retention problems amongst the single-battalion Scottish regiments appears to have been accepted by the majority of serving personnel and was recommended by the then Chief of the General Staff, Sir Mike Jackson. The insistence in some quarters that the Scottish regiments must be treated as a special case, similar to the Guards Division, has not won wide support amongst the army at large.

The amalgamation remains an emotional one however because of the symbolic loss of historical continuity through the individual regimental status of each battalion. An organization called Save the Scottish Regiments [2] was created to campaign against the plan, and the influential newspaper The Scotsman also opposed it. The Scotsmans offices in Edinburgh The Scotsman is a Scottish national newspaper, published in Edinburgh. ...


The status of the Black Watch has been particularly controversial. When the plan to amalgamate the regiments was announced, the Black Watch was deployed at Camp Dogwood in a relatively dangerous region of Iraq. Hoon was accused by the SNP of "stabbing the soldiers in the back" and being motivated purely by political concerns, with little regard to the effect on morale. The was further exacerbated by the accusation that a former Colonel of the Black Watch, Lieutenant-General Alistair Irwin, had originally drafted the Army Board proposals to amalgamate the Scottish Division [3].

In August 2005, the new regimental cap badge was unveiled - it incorporates the Saltire of St Andrew and the Lion Rampant, which are two prominent symbols of Scotland. As a Royal regiment, the cap badge is surmounted by a crown, in this case the Crown of Scotland. The regiment's motto is Nemo Me Impune Lacessit (No One Assails Me With Impunity) - which is the national motto of Scotland, and was also the motto of four of the then-existing Scottish regiments. The former regimental motto of the Highlanders, Cuidich 'n Righ (Aid the King), is also incorporated in the Thistle collar dogs of ceremonial dress uniforms. Also in No. 1 and No. 2 pattern ceremonial dress, all battalions wear a black and white cockfeather hackle attached to the Glengarry, in a tradition taken from the Royal Scots and King's Own Scottish Borderers.

Under the restructuring and the end of the arms plot, each regular battalion will be given a specific operational role:

The three light role battalions will rotate periodically, with either the Royal Scots Borderers or Royal Highland Fusiliers having responsibility for public duties in Edinburgh depending upon which one is under the command of 52nd Infantry Brigade at the time. The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders will rotate the air assault role with two other line infantry/rifles battalions in 16th Air Assault Brigade; when it is not in this role, it will serve as a light role battalion in 52 Infantry Brigade. As an armoured unit, The Highlanders will remain in its fixed location as part of 7th Armoured Brigade in Germany. The two Territorial battalions come under the command of 51st (Scottish) Brigade, the Regional Brigade administering the TA in Scotland.

Alliances

The status of previous alliances is unclear at this time, and it is believed that previous regimental alliances will not automatically be carried over to The Royal Regiment of Scotland. It is also unclear if alliances will be perpetuated by single battalions of the Royal Regiment, or to the regiment as a whole. Until the issue is decided, individual battalions will maintain the alliances of their antecedent regiments.

Science Fair Projects - Royal Regiment of Scotland (519 words)
The Royal Regiment of Scotland is the projected Scottish infantry regiment of the British Army under the forthcoming sweeping reorganisation of the infantry, and will become operational by 2008.
As part of restructuring in the British Army, the Royal Regiment of Scotland's creation was announced by the Secretary of State for Defence Geoff Hoon in the House of Commons on 16 December 2004, after the merger of several regiments was outlined in a defence white paper several months earlier.
The regiment will consist of a total of five battalions: one of these will be formed by the amalgamation of the Royal Scots and King's Own Scottish Borderers, while the others will each be formed from one of the remaining Scottish regiments.
