Dornoch Company Seaforth Highlanders Volunteers 1880

Monochrome photograph of the Dornoch Volunteer Company of the Seaforth Highlanders, in full dress uniform, taken in front of the Sutherland Arms Hotel. In the centre of the Company is a large, teardrop shield trophy. Mounted on card. Comments from Dr Michael Simpson in Dec 2007 suggest the Shield is almost certainly the Elkington. The Dornoch Company won the Bannockburn in 1883.

This excellent photograph should be entitled, 'B' Dornoch Company, 1st. Sutherland Highland Rifle Volunteers.
The name Seaforth was not associated with the unit until 1908.
