They always have you throw your shit on the ground in the parking lot before deployment
I give you the London Scottish Regiment, Kit inspection, Dorking. London, 1916:
The London Scottish were part-time territorials formed as the London Scottish Rifle Volunteers as part of the old Volunteer Force in 1859, sponsored by The Highland Society and The Caledonian Society of London, then later reformed after the Boer War as the London Regiment’s 14th Battalion.
1/14 was called up when the balloon went up in August 1914 which would make the above unit, 2/14, which embarked for France in June 1916. They later served in Salonika and Palestine.
During WWII, the unit raised three full battalions which saw extensive service.
Since 1992, they have formed A (London Scottish) Company of the London Regiment and serve to augment the Foot Guards on public duty, still wearing their kilts for special occasions.
