Russian pioneers sword and small percussion pistol belonging to Andrew Drummond of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders on display at their regimental museum in Stirling Castle

Drummond recovered the sword while serving in the Crimea and unusually for a private in the army he carried this pistol as well as his rifle.

He was awarded a medal for distinguished conduct during the war.

R.I.P. Corporal Nathan Cirillo of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment. The 24 year old soldier was shot and killed while guarding the Tomb of the Unknown at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, Canada this morning in a senseless act of terrorism. My heart is with his family, the City of Ottawa, the people of Canada, and all those affected by this great tragedy.
