If there are any records or muster lists for them I suspect they will either be at the National Archives of Scotland or in a private collection.

The Scottish Military History Society web site had a few lines of description for The Frazer Fencibles 1794-1802 linked from the old web site, that I’ve reproduced below, but the url is no nonger available. I’ve searched for new web site, but couldn’t locate it, so assume like the that is now only available from the web archive, it has also expired.

My search through up a web site with a main title “Scottish Military History web site-Introduction” and a URL ending dot org dot uk – although the first page looks ok many of it’s menu pages appear to be have been hijacked and some have malicious software embedded. There are other web sites with similar URL’s but ending dot co dot uk that appear safe, and there are others that may be able to help, but before you access them ensure you have good anti virus software on your pc, ipad or iphone.
