one of Maynard's men being a Highlander, engaged Teach with his broad sword, who gave Teach a cut on the neck, Teach saying well done lad; the Highlander replied, If it not be well done, I'll do it better. With that he gave him a second stroke, which cut off his head, laying it flat on his shoulder.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

A lot of victories went to the British because of Scottish Warriors, seconded from the Highlands, from the Firth of Forth to the shores of Loch Buie, and thence all over the world.Many were Camerons, Donalds, Campbells,Buchanans and MacIntoshes.
