The pleats of a BW kilt have been described as "round" I was speaking to an ex BW soldier (early '50s), and he described a routine of dipping the pleats in cold water, then using a round rod or broom stick to form the pleats. Does this sound correct? (not that I'm going to do it ) Any ex BW kilts I've seen have all had the pleats ironed flat. Most people don't realise how much of a "badge" a kilt is of itself for the different Regiments. Much of that has been lost, especially with the three Regiment "Highlanders"
