Today in 1689 the Earl of Angus raised the 26th Cameronian Regiment which, with the 90th Perthshire Light Infantry, became The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) in 1881. In their 279 year history they served around the world in almost every theatre of war – winning 19 Victoria Crosses – until they were disbanded in 1968.

Happy 113th Birthday to often overlooked Scottish aviation pioneer Jim Mollison MBE. The Glasgow born pilot held the records for flying from Australia to England (1931) in 8 days 19 hours; flying from England to South Africa (1932) in 4 days 17 hours. He was also the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic east-west from Ireland to Canada (1932).
