Tartans

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by blonde_guy, Nov 10, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. With the creation of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, this replaced the individual Scottish regiments tartans with one generic one for wear with uniform.

    Do any other regiments wear tartan regularly with their uniforms though, do any other tartans exist for wear? And when would kilts/trews be worn

    I ask because I spotted this

    And wondered what regiment/order of dress it was.

    Sure its not the Pipe Major ?

    He seems to have the insignia on his forearm ...
     
  5. I wasn't aware any regiments wore trews any more though....
     
  6. It is the pipe major,.
     
  7. of the SDG ?
     
  8. No, Scots Guards Pipe Major, big lad, used to drink like a fish.
     
  9. 1RTR, Scots DG and RDG have tartan trews that are worn with black tie or morning dress. QRH do as well but tend to wear the "green suit" instead.
     
  10. Scottish OTC's still wear their own tartan
