Im sorry but i thought there was 4 kilted battalions at waterloo?? Or am i wrong?
I believe Wellington had 4 kilted battalions under his command but the Perthshire Buffs were kept back in reserve to cover a possible retreat and so were not present at Waterloo.
There was 3 battalions at Waterloo. The 42nd Royal Highland/"Black Watch", the 79th "Cameron" highlanders & the 92nd "Gordon" Highlanders.
The 78th "Ross-shire Buffs" were on garrison duty at Nieuport. So therefore were not involved in any of the fighting at Quatre Bras or Waterloo.
These were the only regiments to retain proper highland dress (kilts, feather bonnets etc). Other "highland" regiments by this time, had the same uniform as the rest of the line regiments.
