Edinburgh or Dalkeith Militia
« on: Monday 15 February 21 15:59 GMT (UK) »
Where can I find information regarding the Dalkeith Militia around 1869. I think their correct title was Edinburgh or Queen's Regiment Light Infantry Militia.

"A History of the Edinburgh, or Queen's Regiment Light Infantry Militia (now) Third Battalion The Royal Scots" by Major R.C. Dudgeon covers the history from 1588 to 1881. It is available in facsimile from Amazon. For 1869 there is a brief mention of the regiment "assembled this year at Dalkeith for twenty-seven days on the 7th June".
