REG-BN 1 SCOTS
On 28 March 2006, The Royal Scots (The Royal Regiment) merged with the other surviving Scottish Infantry Regiments to form The Royal Regiment of Scotland in which our 1st Battalion became The Royal Scots Battalion. On 1 August 2006 this Battalion merged with The King’s Own Scottish Borderers Battalion to form The Royal Scots Borderers, 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland or 1 SCOTS.
The battalion, based in Dreghorn Barracks, Edinburgh, will move to Palace Barracks in Holywood, Northern Ireland, August 2014.
It is important that we keep alive the name of The Royal Scots and remember those who have gone before us. Serving members of The Royal Scots Borderers, 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, together with members of A Company 52nd Lowland, 6th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, or those who have served as members of that Unit or sub-Unit, are eligible for full membership (£10 per year).
