: Pvt. Johnson and myself will be leading a contingent of the 77th to do some recruiting near Philadelphia. Many Flags will act as our scout as we scour the countryside for those who wish to protect the King's interests in light of the new attacks from the hated French and their native allies. I have in my possession a bag of newly minted shillings which we will press into the hands of those unsuspecting souls joining the ranks of the 60th. For we recruit for the 60th RA, certainly not for the Grenadier Company of Montgomery's, all of us Scots and braw lads! We will return within a fortnight. Off we are now, with a feather in me bonnet and a kilt around me knee, enlist now with me Laddie and come awa' with me!
if the kilt be round your knee......it be a wee bit too long.....we have to uphold the Captain's tradition.....hike it up, so ya won't be trippin' over it.....the kilt too......
