HC Deb 19 February 1969 vol 778 c110W
Mr. Younger

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what percentage of recruits to the Scottish Division were provided during 1968 by the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

Mr. Boyden

Up to 30th June, 1968, men were recruited either into the Highland or Lowland Brigade and thereafter into the Scottish Division. Only after the recruit has arrived at his divisional depot is he allocated to a regiment. It is thus wholly misleading to speak of a regiment providing recruits.
