The Scots Guards
Here is the third illustration in the Scottish series for Si at Solway for the Armies and Enemies of the Scottish Republic. This fella is a private from the Scots Guards, a unit that sided with the Scottish Republic once declared, not surprisingly really. Here is wearing the later version of Service Dress that was smarter that the same version worn in the Great War, with collar and cap badges of the Scots Guards. He has the standard Pattern 1908 Webbing which is in marching order with the gas mask being carried on top of the field pack and is with a MK1, SMLE Rifle. The Cap is from there Dress Uniform with the checked band showing them to be a Scottish Regiments.
