The review of the Royal Scottish Volunteer Regiments took place on the 7 August 1860 in Holyrood Park. This collection is a list of the names of all the volunteers who were present on the occasion.
The Volunteer Regiments were a citizen army of the part-time rifle, artillery and engineer corps. The units of volunteers became increasingly integrated with the British Army after reforms in 1881, before forming part of the Territorial Force in 1908 under the authorisation of the Territorial and Reserves Forces Act, 1907.
Most of the regiments in the present Territorial Army Infantry, Artillery, Engineers and Signals units are directly descended from the Volunteer Force units.
