On the first page is the title, "Regimental book of record;" beneath, a representation of Mars bearing a sword with the motto, "Ad utrumque paratus" and Britannia with a shield containing the white horse of Brunswick (marked "C. F. C. fecit"); at the foot, "Sterling in North Britain, 1726."

On fol. 2. (marked "Officers" on a vellum label projecting from the book) are the royal arms, followed on fols. 3, 12, 13. by twenty-four other coats, chiefly in colours, with a few in trick. There are besides many vacant shields.

On fol. 29 (labelled, "Court Mart.") are the arms of col. Henry Grove, colonel of the regiment from 1715 to 1736, of Francis Columbine, lieut. col. from about 1725, and of S. Duroure, major, surmounted by flags. At fol. 99 is a label marked "Death."
