§ 62. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for War the number of reservists in Scottish units now serving abroad, indicating the units in which they are serving, and when they will be released.
§ Mr. John Hare
There are reservists serving overseas in the following Scottish units: The Royal Scots, The Royal Scots Fusiliers, the King's Own Scottish Borderers, The Black Watch, The Sea-forth Highlanders, The Gordon Highlanders, The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. The Highland Light Infantry, and The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders.
I can give no useful up-to-date figures because the number of reservists still serving is dwindling from day to day as the release scheme proceeds, but at the end of November, before they started coming back, the total number of reservists serving in Scottish units overseas was just over 300.
