    White Cockade

    The White Cockade.

    This is a question firstly for those who wear a White Cockade, but also for those with something to say on the matter in general.

    How do you wear it? On Bonnet, Jacket etc.
    How did you come to have one? Make it? Receive it? Purchase it?
    Why do you wear a White Cockade?
    What does wearing a White Cockade mean for you?
    What has been the response of people to your wearing it? In SCT, CAN, ENG, US etc.

    Some specific questions:

    Do you find there is a connection with a contemporary Nationalist movement? Or Movement in the 20th cent?

    Historically:
    Did the English Jacobites/Non-jurors also wear a white cockade? (Here I realize the clerics and perhaps Gov. administrators were most visible in not swearing the oath.)

    Was there a French Tradition of a White Cockade connected with the Jacobite perspective? (I believe there was a tradition of a White Cockade distinct from the Stewart connotation.)

    Thank you kindly for you responses. I will also post after a while, when I can get back around.

    Peace.
    Justin

    I don't have my copy handy, but I believe Stuart Reid depicts the Manchester Regiment, an English Jacobite force, wearing blue bonnets with white cockades in his book on the Jacobite Army.

    Like this one (on eBay): Jacobite Bonnet



    Personally I do not believe there is anything meant by it in this day and age. Certainly not in the U.S.

    How do you wear it? On Bonnet, Jacket etc. - Bonnet, in place of cap-badge

    How did you come to have one? Make it? Receive it? Purchase it? - Bought, as my sewing skills are less than minimal

    Why do you wear a White Cockade? - To advertise that I strongly believe in Scottish indepence from the westminster government and the Hanoverian dynasty

    What does wearing a White Cockade mean for you? - A symbol of freedom

    What has been the response of people to your wearing it? In SCT, CAN, ENG, US etc. - Positive, though few other than like-minded people reconise the significance (ENG & SCT)

    Some specific questions:

    Do you find there is a connection with a contemporary Nationalist movement? Or Movement in the 20th cent? - Yes, though rarely official

    Historically:
    Did the English Jacobites/Non-jurors also wear a white cockade? (Here I realize the clerics and perhaps Gov. administrators were most visible in not swearing the oath.) - One for the historians!

    Was there a French Tradition of a White Cockade connected with the Jacobite perspective? (I believe there was a tradition of a White Cockade distinct from the Stewart connotation.) - I'll leave this one for Robert

    Thank you kindly for you responses. I will also post after a while, when I can get back around.

    Peace.

    There is a re-enactment/living history organization in Scotland called the
    "White Cockade Society". Their mission is to celebrate the Jacobite peiod of history and commemorate the "Old Alliance". Quite frankly in this day and time, I am not sure why anyone would wear this device unless you are part of a group such as the WCS.

    Back in the 1980s I got a black balmoral and took off the black cockade and put on a white self-made one.

    Why? I suppose to acknowledge the old Jacobite cause.

    I still wear that bonnet!

    Well, if you're a supporter of Franz, Duke of Bavaria as the current Jacobite heir...why not?
