Thanks for that Neil, very interesting.

A newspaper cutting at RSC dates this as a rally of all Royal Scots past and present 20.11.1921. Starting 2pm St Andrew Sq, South St David St, Princes St, The Mound, High Street, service at St Giles 3pm. After service return RSC St Andrew Sq. Attendance over 3,000. The order was: Depot, 1st-19th Battalions, 1st Garrison, 1st-2nd Volunteer Battalions; and the bands in the column were Depot, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th and 9th Battalion.
