5th Royal Scots of Canada (Military)
  • Notes: Adopted as the Regimental tartan on assuming a Scottish identity for the whole regiment in 1880. By 1883 the unit had become kilted but had enormous difficulty in getting a standard shade for the different shipments of tartan. The Regiment thus presented a very patchy appearance on parade and the descision was taken to go over to the Government 42nd pattern. Adoption of the Lorne tartan had been out of deference to the then Marquis who was Governor-General of Canada. In due course the regiment became "The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada."
