The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (Princess Louise's)

'Sans Peur'       Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders red and white dicing       'Ne Obliviscaris'



1. Do not take the name of thy sergeants in vain
- lest thou be called upon to repent amongst the dirty dishes in their Mess.

2. Honour thy Pay Book and thy quarter bloke throughout thy service
- so that thy credits may be as the sands of the desert.

3. Do not half inch thy comrades' kit
- lest thy sins be thrust upon you by the swiftness of the hand that blacks the eye.

4. Do not skive or swing the lead
- lest thou be caught and have to do the penance of RPs.

5. Never tell untruths about thy comrades
- lest they put the bubble in.

6. Do not squander thy wealth on sinful things
- like booze and birds.

7. Worship the ground that thy OC treads on
- lest his wrath descends upon you when summoned to his presence.

8. Never kill the cook if he grieves thee, nor smite his thigh.
- Thou wilt put thy complaint through the normal channels
- where thou shall expect little and receive even less.

9. Never be found out.
- But if thou art,
- do not spill the beans.

10. Six days shall thou labour, and on the seventh thou shall labour twice as hard
- to bring upon the faces of thy brasses and boots a shine of exceeding brightness.
