    5th Ski Battalion Scots Guards, 1940

    From The Scots Guards, 1919-1955, David Erskine, pgs 21 - 26:

    "Instead of teaching a trained and disciplined body of soldiers to ski, the War Office chose to recruit its new battalion from already experienced skiers, and with this object in view volunteers had already been called for during January 1940. On February 3rd telegrams were dispatched all over the world directing the volunteers to report to Quebec Barracks at Bordon on the 6th, an order which must have caused some amusement to those who received their telegrams in such places as India and Hong Kong. Meanwhile, an advance party and skeleton staff, found from all Regiments of the Brigade and including a strong section from Regimental Headquarters, were moved to Bordon to prepare for the arrival of the unknown snowmen. Lieutenant-Colonel J.S. Coats, M.C., Coldstream Guards, a distinguished wintersports expert, was selected to command the Battalion, and, for his Adjutant, Captain W.D.M. Raeburn, Scots Guards, also a well-known skier, was flown home specially from the Second Battalion in Egypt. Major B. Mayfield, also from the Regiment, became Second-in-Command."
