Excerpt from War Diary of the Fifth Seaforth Highlanders, 51st (Highland) Division: With Illustrations and a Map
The 5th Seaforth Highlanders, whose war record is given in this book, is the Territorial Battalion of Caithness and Sutherland, the two most northerly counties in Scotland.
The battalion was first formed in 1859, early in the Volunteer movement, by the Duke of Sutherland and took as its badge, the Sutherland Crest (the Wild Cat), with the proud motto Sans Peur, while its tartan was also the Sutherland, of black, navy blue, and green, similar to that worn by the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
