Officers of Arbroath

editorial image

This week’s photograph from the archives shows the officers of the Arbroath detachment of the 2nd (Angus) VBBW Royal Highlanders. It was taken in 1897, most likely as part of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee activities.

The caption is quite faded, so hopefully we have the names correct, from back left - Major Roy VD, Lieutenant J. Fairweather, Captain Dickson, Captain Wolrige Gordon, major Mackintosh, Lieutenant DW Fairweather, and Major Corsar.

Seated - Chaplain William Duke DD, Colonel Gordon and Brigade Surgeaon Lieutenant-Colonel JK Anderson VD.
