Diorama of British infantry attacking French troops during the War of the Spanish Succession. Although the British Army had been fighting as a cohesive force since the 1690s, the first part of the War of the Spanish Succession actually occurred before the Act of Union between Scotland and England in 1707. For that reason the Scottish regiment still bears saltires instead of union flags.
