The 9th (Highland) Infantry Division was a second line Territorial Army formation at the beginning of the Second World War. After the surrender of the 51st Highland Division in 1940, the 9th Division, a replica of the 51st Division, was reorganised as the new 51st (Highland) Infantry Division. It carried on the great fighting history of Highland military units and fought in North Africa, Sicily and North-West Europe.
