This unique Regiment of Scouts was raised by Lord Lovat in 1900, mainly from Highland stalkers. Valiant, hardy and unorthodox, they and their successors distinguished themselves in two world wars. Serving in a variety of roles, they were always superb in fieldcraft, spying and reconnaissance. Today the Lovat Scouts cap badge is proudly worn by the Orkney Independent Cadet Battery of the Army Cadet Force. The Lovat Scouts story is told for the first time with eye-witness accounts of their exciting exploits and also of many strange and amusing incidents. Written with realism, humour and affection, this book is a living contribution to Highland and military history.
