The Royal Highland Fusiliers

Royal Highland Fusiliers

The gentlemen in the above photograph are members of the Royal Highland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Scotland (2 SCOTS). These eight men were the honor guard for the VIPs of the Greenville Scottish Games. They recently returned home from deployment in Afghanistan.

I find it fascinating how military uniforms and traditions vary even between nations as closely related as the US and Great Britain.

More later.
