Please note that a division is just three brigades of infantry without GUNNERS
The original artillery for the Highland division were highland TA regiments 75,76 and 77 (Highland) Field Regiments. Two of these were 76 & 77 were swapped with regular regiments from 3rd and 4th Divisions in early 1940 (17th and 23rd). 76th (Highland) Field regiment served with 3rd Infantry Division through the war and landed on D Day. 77th served with 4th Division in Tunisia and Italy. 75th Field regiment was evacuated from Le Havre. It was eventually converted into 75th Highland Heavy regiment and served in Sicily and Italy.
The "New" 51st Division renumbered from 9th Highland kept the field artillery of the 9th Division 126,127 and 128th (Highland) Field Regiments. There are two memoirs of Gunners from this division.
