There is some debate about which battalion is depicted in this painting. But it is likely to be the 2nd Battalion, training in Glasgow before being sent to the West Indies in 1759. This painting is of exceptional interest as a representation of the workings of an infantry battalion of the period, likewise for its panoramic depiction of contemporary Glasgow.

This picture is largely or even totally unknown to those in the Scottish public museum sector engaged with Scottish landscape and topography and/or social history. It may be that this painting is one of the few that depicts the former Glasgow Green wall. The wall no longer exists and Greendyke Street, along the north of the Green, lies in its place.

The painting was presented by bequest in 1947 to the officers 2nd Battalion The Black Watch by Captain Alistair Hamilton Younger of Skene.
