ECCOSAIS 92nd Regiment d?Infanterie
ECCOSAIS 92nd Regiment d?Infanterie. Colour etching by an unknown artist, 1815 (c). The 92nd (Gordon) Highlanders served in Egypt, the Low Countries, Portugal, Spain and Waterloo. During the Napoleonic Wars eight Scottish infantry regiments were designated Highland Regiments, they were well known for their ferocity on the battlefield and their good behaviour off it. As the war went on some abandoned their highland dress since the unwillingness of non-Highlanders to wear a kilt had made it difficult for them to attract recruits. From a collection of ten engravings of the British Army in Paris entitled ?Costumes Millitaires?, published by Genty, Paris, 1815 (c). Date: circa 1815
