Cuir and Dewitie

#1
hi
Could anyone tell me what the motto for the 205 (Scottish) Field Hospital (Volunteers) means - it's Cuir and Dewitie.
I'd be really grateful if you could help
Thanks!!!

The Unit motto is 'Cuir and Dewitie', taken from the exhortation by Mary, Queen of Scots to her surgeons before the Battle of Langside in 1568, "to do their 'Cuir and Dewitie', to the wounded of both sides this day". The 'medical' desert rat emblem dates from the Unit deployment on the first Gulf War in 1991.

Googled and got the MOD site from which this came, old Lowland Scots.

If its any consolation, we got our own back for her poor elocution, by whacking her in the swede with an axe before chopping her head off properly.
Harsh but ultimately, fair.
