    Tartan Identification

    Hi, I'm looking for some help to identify these tartans





    They were worn by a pipe band with some affiliation to the Canadian Regiment, The 1st Hussars in London Ontario.
    The pictures of the second tartan aren't very good but the best I could find, any help is greatly appreciated

    It's a bit tricky with such poor quality images.

    Tartans do drive digital cameras nuts...if it weren't Canada would guess Confederate Memorial on the red and gray, but of course that's not it.

    My best guess is Charles Edward Stuart variant for the middle and last one
    But I could be wrong

    It appears that the first photo is from a parade of the 1st Hussars to commemorate D-Day. These are some better quality images of the tartan, with perhaps some other details in their insignia that may help pin down the tartan. You can enlarge the photos on each page.

    Thanks, looking at those pictures you can see the badge of the 1st Hussars on the bass drum and itís also on the the bass drum in the second picture above, is it unusual for a pipe band to have two different kilts?

    From what I can determine it's not in the STA database so if anyone finds out please let me know so that I can add it.

    Will do, I contacted a former member of the regiment and he is going to see what he can find.
