Though mocked by the Swiss for their Scottish Kilts and large Bearskin Shakos, they were a very fierce and noble Battalion of Infantry Defending the Borders of Jura against the onslaught of the Duchys Armies, Venables lead them in the Battle of Geneva Heights, Where the 76th Defeated the Duchys Cavalry and rescued the 14th Juran Regiments Light Company from the jaws of the 12th Duchy Hussars.
The Battalion is usually stationed with Major General Blau's personal Army.
The Battalion are noted for their Pipe band which follows the Regiment into Battle always! they are also noted for their almost fool-hardy bravery, often charging into the breach with no concern for what lays ahead or what the enemy may have planned, they attack with one strategy. kill the enemy and kill them without mercy, and above all else avenge those who do not make into the breach.
Their Motto is simply "Nemo me impune lacessit" or translated into english from Gaelic "Who dares meddle with me?"
