Highlanders Arrive On The Rock



Members of The Highlanders, 4th Battalion the Royal Regiment of Scotland (4 Scots) arrived on the Rock yesterday (12 April) to cover the duties of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment whilst the RG are in the United Kingdom.

Here for several weeks, the Highlanders will carry out security tasks at Devil’s Tower Camp and complete military training.

‘We are delighted to be here,’ said Captain Callum MacLeod, ‘We will be busy, but the Rock offers fantastic training opportunities and we are looking forward to taking full advantage.’

The soldiers, whose Private ranks are informally called ‘Jocks’, will be easy to spot whilst carrying out formal duties in Gibraltar as the kilt forms part of the Regiment’s traditional ceremonial uniform.

The Regiment is normally based in Germany and last visited Gibraltar in the 1990s.
