Second thoughts on this: the present issue kilt is perhaps heavier and more blanket-like than it needs to be these days. It was part of field uniform in WW1 - it was even worn in the field by the Camerons in France as late as 1940.
If the new kilt was of a slightly lighter/smoother material, similar to present offrs quality kilts (which they pay for), I would have no problem with that. It can't be too light - its for outdoor wear - beware the snell wind which blows across the Esplanade
"Once again the Government has spunked the entire budget, protecting the human rights of asylum seekers and those attacking British troops in other countries, allowing the mismanagement of the NHS and the educaction system to continue by throwing more money at it and continued to prop up BAe Systems and their outdated business and manufactue techniques. Therefore the average Brit especially those in the armed forces can go fcuk yourself"
