I know that Robert Rogers was of Scottish descent, and have recently learned that I am somewhat Celtic myself. I know that Rogers used the thistle as part of his unit's insignia, and I understand that the thistle is the emblem of Clan Stuart, from which I hail (doesn't everybody?), but also commonly used as an all-around symbol of Scotland itself. I was wondering if anybody (perhaps Maj. Bray?) could tell me what Clan Rogers claimed as his own? Perhaps if there were any paintings showing him wearing a tartan, it could be determined from that, but I didn't know the first place to look, so I came here first.
PS- Thanks Caitlin for the photo of the bridge, it's beautiful!
