In 1740, independent Highland companies were embodied as the 43rd regiment of the line. Muskets and bayonets were supplied by the government, traditional broadswords by the colonel, pistols and dirks by the men. Later, pistols were made by the gunmakers in England. This study deals with the formation and arming of the famous Highland regiments. Soft cover, 7 x 10", 32 pages, well illustrated.
