 A troop consisting initially of gentlemen volunteers, possibly equipped as cuirassiers,​ forming Argyll’s Lifeguard. At some time in 1645 they accepted the surrender of Lindisfarne,​ but spent the rest of their time serving in Scotland. They are not mentioned as being present at the battles of Fyvie, Inverlochy and Kilsyth, but as Argyll himself was present, it appears quite possible his Lifeguard were as well. The troop lasted until February 1647 when they disbanded. A troop consisting initially of gentlemen volunteers, possibly equipped as cuirassiers,​ forming Argyll’s Lifeguard.
