Presentation of Colours Elgin, September 1909

A photograph showing a batallion of the Seaforth Highlanders presenting their Colours at a parade at Elgin, on 18 September 1909. The towers of Elgin Cathedral can be seen in the background.

The Seaforth Highlanders regiment was created as part of the Childers Reforms in 1881, through the amalgamation of the 72nd Highlanders (Duke of Albany's Own) and the 78th Highlanders (Ross-shire Buffs). Fort George served as the Seaforth Highlanders' depot for most of the regiment's existence. Their motto is 'Cuidich an Righ', which translates from the Gaelic as 'Aid the King'.
