In 1809 the Scottish 1st Battalion of the 73rd (Highland) Regiment of Foot embarked at Yarmouth for a seven-month journey to New South Wales. Their role was to ensure the newly appointed New South Wales Governor Lachlan Macquarie was able to govern after the previously appointed governor William Bligh was deposed by leading members of the New South Wales Corps (102nd Regiment of Foot) in the Rum Rebellion. There in 1810 they received a draft of men from the New South Wales Corps. They left Sydney in 1814.
