In an infantry regiment of this period only a few of the battalion officers would be mounted; The Colonel, his Second-in-Command and the Regimental Adjutant. All others marched on foot alongside their men.

It should be noted that kilt-wearing was not a good choice while horse riding; therefore tartan trews, in the Regimental tartan, was adopted.

The ceremonial uniforms worn by these ‘parading figures’ are those that were in use from 1908, when the MKⅢ Lee Enfield rifle was introduced, up until 1939 when WW2 began.
