I am current reading through Military Identities by David French, a useful book about how the regimental system developed and actually worked. As part of the story he relates to issues regarding the amalgamation of the Highland Light Infantry (HLI) and the Royal Scots Fusiliers (RSF) in the 1950s, with the most contentious issue being the HLI wore kilts and the RSF wore trews, so which form of dress should the new regiment adopt. I was under the impression that the HLI did not wear kilts, but wore trews. Could someone therefore confirm whether it was kilts or trews? Thanks.
