Highlanders on the Roof of the World

The Guardian has a nice interactive feature on soldiers from the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders preparing for a deployment to Afghanistan. Abu Muqawama and his dad once visited the regimental museum at Stirling Castle. Quite a few of our clan has served in the regiment through the years, but this was all after our lot had packed up and left for America. That didn't keep Abu Muqawama from getting peeved when all the Scots regiments were consolidated into one regiment a few years ago. The Thin Red Line has just gotten thinner through the years.
