HLI Veterans remember Crossing the Rhine 23rd/24th March 1945

This website has been developed to raise the awareness of the Highland Light Infantry Association and facilitate communication between its members whilst also appealing to the wider general public.

The website will grow over time and aims to stimulate further research and study into this famous Scottish Regiment.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

we will remember them
