No, but there is a clue in the names of three of them, if you have a bit of military knowledge.Were they all named after Fusiliers?
(not very up on this aspect of military stuff to be honest)

I won’t let this one run too long, as D6130 has already got most of the answer, and will reveal the final detail tomorrow lunchtime if nobody gets it first.
I'm happy to let @D1537 set the next one, as my WiFi connection here in Italy is very erratic and I may not be able to post for a week or more.Basically, yes. The four regiments were all territorial ones based in central Scotland: three of them included the word Yeomanry in their title. D6130 got most of the answer, so gets to set the next question.
I’m thinking a class 47 but I’m not sure which one. 47522 maybe?
I think it was 47452 that was damaged at Morpeth then?
And that's correct! Entered Crewe Works in July 84 and emerged in October 86. Apparently the "we've spent X amount on it already, we can't scrap it now" idea set in, and it ended up costing round £250,000. Being a 47/4, it was quite funny the number of bashers that turned up for its first workings because of course anyone who'd taken up the hobby in the last 2+ years would have needed it. It then lasted less than 5 years, being withdrawn in August 1991.
