Murdock Dan MacKeigan

94th Victoria Regiment "Argyll Highlanders"

Circa Early 1920's

In this photo Murdock holds the rank of major. The location is not known but the photo was probably taken in Cape Breton. Murdock is wearing ribbon bars on his chest indicating the photo was taken after World War One. His cap badge is from the 94th but his collar badges are General List. After the war Murdock probably re-established his ties with the 94th Regiment which would have reverted back to militia status. In 1920 the 94th was reorganized and became the Cape Breton Highlanders.
