Prestonpans part 4
Despite what most of the general public believe, the 1745 rising was not just English against Scottish. There were by far more Scots fighting with King George II than for Prince Charles Edward Stuart. There were two Highland Regiments in the British army which fought in the '45. The 43rd Regiment later the 42nd Black Watch Royal Highland Regiment, and the 64th Regiment Loudoun's Highlanders. These "Highlanders" are Airfix Waterloo Highlanders which were altered with a modelling knife, a lighter (don't try that at home kiddies unless Daddy is holding it) and painting.
