The Black Watch has appeared in the King & Country inventory several times since the company began in 1984.
During the 1980’s and 1990’s we produced a series of ‘Parade’ figures that included marching Highlanders, Colour Parties and a number of different ‘Pipes & Drums’ sets.
In more recent times we have had ‘Napoleonic’ Black Watch fighting the Emperor’s armies at Waterloo as well as taking part in WW2.
Now, we are going back to the more colourful days when the ‘Watch’ and other Scottish Regiments of the Line wore bright red scarlet tunics, feather bonnets and swinging kilts and sporrans.
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.
The figures you see here are just the ‘Advance Guard’ of The Black Watch on parade... Many more are to follow.
This marching soldier was also attached to the Regimental Band and Pipes & Drums as a Drummer / Bugler. However when accompanying the Commanding Officer only a bugle was required.
