The Dumfries & Galloway half of the Kings Own Scottish Borderers Battalion ACF amalgimated with the Ayr & Renfrewshire Battalion ACF in 1992 to form the West Lowland Battalion ACF.

The battalion has a footprint in a huge area in the south-west of Scotland. It has no fewer than 34 detachments in Dumfries & Galloway, Ayrshire, Refrewshire and Inverclyde, as well as two detachments on islands – Brodick on the Isle of Arran and Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. We have no fewer than five Lord Lieutenants (technically six as Bute is part of Argyll) in our area – all strong supporters of the Army Cadet Force.

At present, there are over 700 cadets, supported by around 130 adult volunteers and 12 Permanent Support Staff.

There are no fewer than eight cap badges within the battalion – The Royal Regiment of Scotland (1 SCOTS, 2 SCOTS & 5 SCOTS), The Parachute Regiment, The Scottish Yeomanry, The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, The Royal Logistics Corps, The Royal Signals, The Royal Engineers and The Royal Artillery.
