Kit# 9800 - 93rd Sutherland Highland
Valiant Miniature Kit# 9800 - 93rd Sutherland Highlanders New Orleans, 1815. This regiment was hand-picked in 1800 from the estates of the Countess of Sutherland, and quickly established a reputation as one of the finest units in the British Army. Often described as a regiment of giants (the average height was 5'10"), this splendid unit was tragically squandered at New Orleans; ordered to halt only 150 yards from the American lines, the highlanders were mowed down in their ranks, suffering an appalling 75% casualties before they were finally allowed to withdraw.
