No 4 Company, 4th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders, 1919

A group photograph of troops from the No. 4 Company of the 4th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders, taken in 1919.

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'.

The 4th Seaforth Highlanders were part of the Seaforth and Cameron Brigade of the Highland Division when the First World War broke out, but left the brigade in November 1914 to go to France, where they joined with the Dehra Dun Brigade of the 7th (Meerut) Division of the Indian Corps.
