The Gordon Highlanders were raised in 1794 by Alexander, 4th Duke of Gordon. His wife, Lady Jane
and their daughters dressed in regimental jacket and helped to recruit the men for the original
regiment! His son, George, Marquis of Huntly, was the first Colonel-in-Chief and authorized the unit to
wear his crest as their cap badge! The regiment went on to become the most famous of all the
Scottish Regiments AND British Regiments! Winston Churchill who was Prime Minister of Great Britain
during World War 2 called the Gordon Highlanders "the finest regiment that ever was!"
