Description

“Air son ar duthchais” (For our heritage) Gaelic motto of the Scots Guards. The creation of the Scots Guards Regiment was the response of the most progressive sector of the Caledonian Highlander Army to the painful lessons acquired during the Separatist Wars. It was proposed to create a new unit distanced from the influence of Clan loyalty that is ever-present in all Highlander troops. This new regiment would only answer to the military Command and the Justiciar itself, and never to any Clan. For its formation, training and leadership, Colonel Émile Augier was hired, a Merovingian mercenary officer versed in modern combat techniques. The Colonel would make the Sixth Regiment a mobile and flexible unit, highly trained and disciplined, adapted to long distance fighting as well as to close combat. This new regiment, known as the Scots Guards, saw much criticism from the most powerful Clans, who saw it as a clear attack on their political and military influence in Caledonia.
