Upon leaving Her Majesty's Armed Forces I went to Liverpool Uni to study Law, maybe to defend Squaddies who have unfairly found themselves facing charges simply as the result of drunken high spirits!! Anyway, I have a graduation ball next month and my mother (bless her) is very proud to have a graduate in the family and being from an Ulster/Scots family wants me to wear the family tartan. I've never worn a kilt before and I'm looking at it more from a NAAFI bar / squaddy point of view than family history. This ball will be full of drunken young splits and there'll be very few if any of the lads wearing Kilts. The question then obviously is, will it improve my chances of bagging one these little scutters?? What are your experiences? Any Jocks or Paddies, when you have gone to a black tie event in your tartan is it a magnet?? All advice gratefully received and if any of it helps me pull, free conveyancing next time you buy a house!!!
