Hi
Were they called anything else? This was listed on William Andrew Boyd's daughter's wedding certificate.

There are other members with more knowledge than me about regimental matters so they may be able to clarify more for you

The ones often confused were:

The Royal Scots (Lothian Regiment) and
The Royal Scots Fusiliers

Only the first one named had a 3/8th Battalion, a training unit which was amalgamated with other in Sep 1916 so presumably the marriage was before this date?
