The 'Black Watch' disbanded 

This is a tragedy. Look at that unit's resume:
“They have fought in North America against native tribes during the seven year’s war. “They have defeated George Washington in the Battle of Long Island. They have fought in the Boer War. They fought at Waterloo, the Somme and Ypres.

“Black Watch solders were among the first forward in some of the most intense fighting of World War II in Normandy after the D-Day landings.

“The 1st Battalion of The Black Watch became the first British unit to enter German territory in World War II.”
Defeated George Washington. Probably their greatest credential.

I love their motto:
'Nemo Me Impune Lacessit’ — ‘no one attacks me with impunity
Them's men's men.
