Notes
Booth/Mehew footnote page 267 suggests that RLS is referring to the title of the regimental slow march (lyric by Lieut-Gen Sir Harry Erskine Bart), but I think, from the context, the lack of initial capital letters and the use of the word 'royally', that RLS is referring to Sir Walter Scott's well-known promise to George IV that he (the king) would wear the 'garb of old Gaul' (ie the kilt) on his visit to Edinburgh in 1822.
