"Scotland Forever! The Unyielding Spirit of the Scots Greys" In the annals of history, one name stands tall - the Scots Greys. Renowned for their unwavering bravery and indomitable spirit, this British heavy cavalry regiment etched their legacy in golden letters. On that fateful day, 18th June 1815, at Waterloo, Scotland roared with pride as the charge of the Scots Greys shook the very foundations of battle. With swords gleaming and hearts afire, they fearlessly charged into enemy lines. Their valorous actions forever immortalized in paintings like "The Charge of the Scots Greys, " depicting a moment frozen in time. Amongst these heroes was Sergeant-Major Geoffrey Keyes and his father who fought side by side with unwavering loyalty. They epitomized not only family bonds but also an unbreakable bond to their homeland. It was during this historic clash that Sergeant Ewart emerged as a symbol of triumph when he captured the French eagle at Waterloo. His act embodied sheer determination and became a testament to Scottish resilience. Beyond Waterloo's fields lies Ringwood Church and River Avon; picturesque scenes where tranquility contrasts with tales of heroism. Yet even amidst such serenity, echoes lingered from battles fought long ago. Years later, during The Crimean War (1854-56), another chapter unfolded – "The Rally of the Scots Greys. . at Balaclava. " Though creator unknown, this artwork captures their rallying cry against all odds; showcasing how they stood firm amidst chaos and adversity. Through countless campaigns and conflicts across centuries, these brave warriors remained steadfast guardians of freedom. Their trumpeter on horseback heralded courage while charging relentlessly towards victory. One cannot forget Ponsonby's leadership when The Scots Greys charged two batteries of French artillery after capturing colors from Regiment 105th in 1815 - an act of sheer audacity and strategic brilliance.
