    After a long search on the internet, i managed to find just one photo of black watch officers wearing a blue patrol jacket and kilt with dress sporran.
    And they are not pipe majors...
    No belts or sashes

    The photo, as the capture says is from the south-african period

    That's a great photo!

    2nd Battalion. I wonder if that way of wearing blue Patrols was limited to the 2nd Battalion, or all Battalions of that regiment, or if it was more widespread in Highland regiments than I had realised.

    So it looks like the black watch for certain could wear a kilt with the blue patrol tunic.
    I just found this picture of officers of the 4th black watch at monzie camp 1914

    Considering the monochrome tones -for instance in comparison with glengarry and kilt fabric- is it certain that the frocks in these photographs are not scarlet?
