"Originally formed as the Life Guards of the Army of Scotland in 1642,
the regiment was deactivated when Charles II fled to France after the
Battle of Worcestershire in 1651. It was reactivated by Charles in 1660
as part of the Scottish, rather than English, Army. With the Union of
the two countries in 1707, the Scots Guards marched to London and
became the Third Regiment of Foot Guards on the British establishment."
