and, seizing the standard from Bannerman, crossed the .Spey,
and placed it on the other side of the river in sight of the
rebels. In reward of this gallant service, the King constituted
Alexander Carron and his heirs heritable standard bearers of
Scotland ; he also made him a grant of lands, and conferred
on him the name of Skirmisher, or Scrymgeour, signifying a
hardy fighter, and gave him a part of the royal arms of Scot- '
land for his armorial bearing, viz., gu., a lion rampant arg.,
holding in his dexter paw a crooked sword pp., and the woid
" Dissipate " for his motto.
