  • Notes: Founded in 1972, the K.S. Tartan has been designed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of the K.S. Society. It?s membership is drawn from a wide range of backgrounds brought together by the inspirational memories of Keith Stanhope. A man who?s interests were as diverse as his following. From music, dance, poetry and fashion, to sport, antiquities and the great outdoors. Keith had a unique and alternative view. The tartan sett is original and incorporates the repeating theme of 4. One stripe or repeat for each decade since the founding of the Society. The colours represent various aspects of Keith?s life. Green : his love of outdoor pursuits, particularly camping. Navy : representing his Scottish heritage and his brief spell with the Navy, Keith the seaman. Gold : a fine malt whisky shared with some of his older friends helped his creative juices and inspired his writing of 'Davey and the Mole', later set to music. Rust : symbolic of his favourite season when this colour is elegantly spooned onto the Perthshire countryside. Pink : memories of cresting sunsets and his background in the legal profession.
