Limited Edition #263 of 500.

The Royal Scots originally known as the Royal Regiment of Foot, it was the oldest infantry regiment of the line in the British army.

Originally raised in 1633, in February 1812 the regiment was re-titled the 1st Regiment of Foot (Royal Scots) The First Battalion was sent to Quebec with the outbreak of the War of 1812. The third Battalion fought in the Penninsula War and was later part of Picton’s Division at the Battle of Waterloo. These figures will also be suitable for Waterloo displays.

Their nickname as “Pontius Pilate’s Bodyguard”, originated from a Seventeenth Century boasting contest with the French Regiment of Picardy, who boasted that prior to the Resurrection, Christ’s Tomb was guarded by the French Regiment. Both claims are untrue.
