    more Ebay misinformation

    Once again an Ebay listing isn't what it says it is:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/283341518349

    The sporrans indeed are Cameron Highlanders sporrans. You can only see the cantle of one of them, it's missing its badge.

    But the hats aren't Scottish military hats, and the "kilts" aren't Cameron Highlanders kilts.

    The lower one is a ladies' skirt in Dress MacDonald tartan.

    The upper one might be a kilt, but certainly not a Cameron Highlanders kilt. I don't recognise that tartan, but for sure it's not Cameron of Erracht.

    One of the hats is a 32nd degree Scottish Rite pillbox.

    OMG. Well one thing's for sure, the buyer didn't know all that much about militaria.

    I hadn't studied the photos earlier. I just gave a cursory look. The right hand Sargent's jacket has a Canada shoulder patch. I don't know enough about British uniforms. With that could it still be a Highlander jacket? I know that the RAF used country of origin patches during WWII for the number of foreigner serving in the squadrons. Is the same true of the Army?

    The jackets and sporrans appear to be legit. (I actually didn't examine the jackets very closely.)

    My issue was the seller claiming he was selling two uniforms: hats, jackets, kilts, and sporrans.

    That claim infers that the hats, jackets, kilts, and sporrans are all parts of a Cameron Highlanders uniform.

    Rather, there's a mix of military and civilian items.
