Gordon Highlanders la18- n
A soldier in the regiment 92nd foot, raised by the Duke of Gordon in 1794 (orig 100th regiment of foot.) 

He walked over to Guthrie's side and looked down over the rooftops and saw, between Mount Cameron and the north shore, a white flag flying. As he watched, seized now with the older man's solemnity, he saw another white flag hoisted, closer to the sea. It was a big flag and, as it caught the wind and unfurled slowly, he felt an absurd impulse to salute.
