Military historian gives evidence on Referendum on Separation for Scotland

28 October 2013

The Scottish Affairs Committee takes evidence from a military historian on a potential Army for Scotland on Tuesday 29 October 2013.

It has been suggested that if Scotland left the UK, it might create an army made up of a share of what is currently the British Army, and this could include “current Scottish raised and restored UK regiments”.

The Committee will take evidence from a military historian to explore what “current Scottish raised and restored UK regiments” might mean, and to look at what the implications might be for a fledgling Scottish army and also the remaining British Army.

Witnesses

Tuesday 29 October

At 2.30pm in Committee Room 6, Palace of Westminster

  • Dr Patrick Mileham, Former British Army officer, Royal Tank Regiment and writer on Military History
