Argylls of the 2nd Battalion in the trenches of the Western Front
circa 1915

("Princess Louise's")

The 2nd Battalion
1914 - 1915


The 2nd Battalion, Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders ("Princess Louise's") is an authentic, recreated unit from the Great War (WWI) period, 1914 -1918, based in the Pacific Northwest near the US/Canadian border.
The purpose of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders is to present an accurate representation of what the life of the WWI era Jock was like and to recreate the events of the period at historical battle reenactments, living history demonstrations & Highland games, and in so doing pay tribute to & honour the memories of these valiant Highland soldiers who fought with such ferocity and bravery at the Battle of the Somme & throughout the entire Great War, that history remembers them as "The Ladies From Hell"!

In Remembrance of 9/11
& the troops fighting terrorism...
"Ne Obliviscaris" (Do Not Forget)

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.
The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic
feeling of a person who thinks that nothing is worth war
is much uglier. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight -
- nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety and well being
-- is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free,
unless made and kept so by the exertions and blood of better men than himself."

This is a famous quote, known by almost every cadet from Annapolis to the Air Force Academy.
This was written by John Stewart Mill (1806-1873).
