The Lovat Scouts (from 1903 to 1908 Lovat’s Scouts Imperial Yeomanry) were a British Army unit first formed during the Second Boer War as a Scottish Highland yeomanry regiment of the British Army. They were the first known military unit to wear a ghillie suit and in 1916 formally became the British Army’s first sniper unit, then known as “sharpshooters”. The regiment has gone through a number of changes and evolutions over the decades. For many years prior to the ending of the Scottish infantry division, it was embodied as the Orkney element of a rifle company as part of the 2nd Battalion, 51st Highland Volunteers.
