|Edinburgh Castle from the Grassmarket on a braw day. I can see my house from up there you know.|
|Edinburgh Castle on another braw day. My house obscured by extinct volcano and castle.|

But if you look closely there is something else going on here, for this is the eponymous Pvt McBain and just before the battle, McBain's wife, who was with him on campaign, "handed over their three-week old baby son to him saying she would follow the Colours no more. Having nowhere else to put him, McBain placed the baby in his knapsack where he remained, and survived throughout the battle."
Now that's what you call a braw bairn.
