Officer Commanding:

Lt Col Tim J. Lai

The Highlanders (Seaforth, Gordons & Camerons) were formed in September 1994 when the Queen’s Own Highlanders were amalgamated with the Gordon Highlanders under “The options for change” review carried out by the Tory Government of the day.  Much was made of the campaign “Save Our Soldiers” but alas we were not given any reprieve, and the inevitable amalgamation took place at Dreghorn Barracks in Edinburgh. The name “Queen’s Own Highlanders” was then dropped from the title and the Gordon’s name was added to the title Seaforth & Camerons.
