Colours

A guard of honour accompanied the old colours of the Scottish regiments from Edinburgh Castle to St Giles on November 15th 1883. A detachment from the Scots Greys and the regimental band and pipers of the Gordon Highlanders also took part in the procession. The route from the fortress to St Giles was lined with hundreds of men, women and children who had turned out to see the colours being laid up.
