The 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment of Foot was a Scottish infantry regiment in the British Army also known as the Black Watch. Originally titled Crawford's Highlanders or the Highland Regiment and numbered 43rd in the line, in 1748, on the disbanding of Oglethorpe's Regiment of Foot, they were renumbered 42nd and in 1751 formally titled the 42nd (Highland) Regiment of Foot. The 42nd Regiment was one of the first three Highland Regiments to fight in North America

The regiment was created as part of the Childers Reforms in 1881, when the 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment of Foot (The Black Watch) was amalgamated with the 73rd (Perthshire) Regiment of Foot. It was known as The Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) from 1881 to 1931 and The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) from 1931 to 2006. Part of the Scottish Division, it was the senior regiment of Highlanders.

The Royal Highlanders. the Gallant Forty-Two. The Germans christened them 'the ladies from hell'. Down the stormy centuries from Fontenoy to the Hook in Korea Britain's enemies have called them other less printable names. And the menacing name has stuck. Their old 'black' tartan has stuck too, and today is worn by imitators around the world from Tokyo to Trinidad. Today they are fully motorized and mechanized for nuclear war. But the heart of the Black Watch is still Highland. The stern old regiment still keeps it s un i qu e tr ad itions. In the wild places of the world, in the most ferocious battles of the British army where victory was balanced on a bayonet point, the Black Watch has usually been there.

The name Black Watch had already been generally applied to the independent companies and it continued with the new regiment. They paraded in a field between Taybridge and Aberfeldy in Perthshire. Each company had, at that time, its own tartan, according to the clan of the company commander so a new tartan had to be devised for the whole regiment. This may have come into effect some years later as prints of the soldiers of the Black Watch show mostly a yellow plaid with red check. The absence of the Black Watch from the Highlands may well have encouraged Prince Charles Edward to arrive in Scotland in 1745, but the fact that the redcoats were otherwise engaged, in the European war, must also have been a factor.
