During the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars with France, which lasted almost continuously from 1793 until 1815, the British regular army found itself stretched to the limit at home and abroad. To assist in guarding against invasion and maintaining internal security a variety of auxiliary home-defence units were raised.

There were many volunteer units of varying quality, but the militia - raised by selective conscription - constituted a better-organised national reserve force. In the late nineteenth century (by which time militia service had become voluntary) Ayrshires militia became part of the Royal Scots Fusiliers, and it maintained a distinct identity within that regiment until 1919.
