Black & white photograph of Archibald Henderson of Kilmoluaig (1854-1903), in the uniform of the 5th Volunteer Battalion of The Highland Light Infantry, in around 1880. Archibald was the son of Hector Henderson, Grianal (1812-1856), and Julia MacLean, Kilmoluaig (1827-1873) – family of the Hendersons of Moss. He migrated from Tiree to Glasgow in the 1880s.


The uniform was based on that of Black Watch, including the same tartan and a similar style cap badge. The 5th Volunteer Battalion of The Highland Light Infantry was raised in Glasgow in 1868 and was known as the Glasgow Highlanders ‘G’ Company, being made up of natives from Argyllshire. The honorary Colonel of the battalion was the Duke of Argyll. The volunteer battalions were akin to the modern reserve force of the British Army (Territorial Army).
