AsMoreThe Black Watch is one of the finest fighting forces in the world, and has been engaged in virtually every worldwide conflict for the last three centuries. Named after the dark tartan of the soldiers kilts, it is the oldest Highland regiment.

As part of the British army, their first battle abroad was in Flanders in 1745, but the regiment soon moved to North America to fight the French, and then shared the capture of Montreal, the Windward Islands, and Martinique. The American War of Independence saw the regiment once again in America, fighting horrific battles and eventually storming Fort Washington in 1776. Since then the regiment has held its own from the Napoleonic Wars to the Indian mutiny to Iraq.
