Private Bryan Johnson became engaged just minutes after being awarded the Military Cross for bravery. Johnson one of five Scots to receive the Military Cross risked his own life to come to the aid of a fellow soldier in the midst of a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan. The hero from the Royal Regiment of Scotland got down on one knee to propose, dressed in highland military attire including a kilt and glengarry. The Royal Scots was founded in 1633 are the oldest infantry regiment in the British Army. In 2005 they were merged with the King's Own Scottish Borderers. The regiment’s cap badge features the Saltire of Saint Andrew, the Lion Rampant and the Crown and incorporates the motto ‘Nemo Me Impune Lacessit’ which means ‘No one provokes me with impunity!’ The regiments wear a regimental cap badge, tartan and Glengarry headdress, each separate battalion wears distinctive coloured hackles on the Tam o' Shanter head dress to maintain their individual identity. All of the battalions wear the Blackcock tail feathers attached to the Tam o’Shanter in traditional style. The tartan of the new regiment is the Sutherland tartan which is a version of the Black Watch tartan worn by the Argyll and Sutherland Highlandersand the kilt is sewn in traditional military box pleats. The horsehair sporran features a Black Watch mantle. The Black and Red diced Hose and scarlet Garter flashes are in the same style as that worn by the Black Watch. Soldiers of each Regiment wear a battalion Hackle and while in combat dress each battalion wears different coloured hackles on the Tam O’Shanter. We would like to wish Private Johnson our congratulation and offer our services should he be looking for a traditonal Highland wedding outfit!
