    QOCH of Canada Officer's uniform on Ebay

    This beautiful and near-complete uniform is on Ebay, an Officer's uniform from The Queens Own Cameron Highlanders Of Canada.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/QUEENS-OWN-...16.m2518.l4276

    Usually when uniforms come up they're mashups of civilian and military items and/or mashups of items from multiple regiments.

    Here AFAIK all the items are from the same unit.

    Two things are curious to me:

    1) the bonnet has an extra piece of wide black ribbon beside the black ribbon cockade where the cap-badge is pinned.

    2) I can't recall seeing a Cameron Highlanders kilt pleated like that. It has very few pleats and they seem to be knifepleated (or perhaps badly pressed).



    I'm used to seeing the pleats narrower and boxpleated



    Of course that sporran would be worn in No2 Dress, shirtsleeve order, and the like. I would imagine that an MOD "Culloden" sporran would have been worn with this uniform, if the Canadian unit followed the uniform of its parent unit in Scotland.
