Highland Light Infantry

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Looking for some info about the capbadge.

    Did the HLI, from WW1 to present, wear a backing to their capbadge and if they did what was it?

    Grateful for any info
     
  2. Best bet is to get in contact with the RHF Regimental Museum as the HLI amalgamated with the RSF to form the RHF.

    Hope this helps.

  5. No probs. If you google image the HLI, you may find the info you require but I'm not sure if the Regimental Musicians wore a different Tartan. The RHF have their own website as well
     
  6. Why is the TOS so big??!

    'cos thats what they're supposed to be like.

    Though tbf, they've shrunk over the years to be of a more practical, and convenient size - that and it saves in the cost of material - you'd probably get 3 new ToS out 1 old 'un.
