    "It wouldn't surprise me if someone coming from one of those cultures might think that Clan tartans would likewise stipulate specific colours."

    WHAT? they don't? You mean the guy at the clan tent lied to me? But he had a sword and a bonnet and everything.

    He was demonstrating how "the whole nine yards" of single width modern fabric could be used as a blanket just like it was done at before battle of so he must be an expert, right?

    Yes, strange-looking, isn't it?

    I hadn't seen these things till I started participating on these online forums.

    IIRC If I Recall Correctly is another common one here.

    AFAIK specific to XMTS is THCD.

    I'd always heard and used it with "Highland Dress" maintained as its longstanding off-used unit, therefore TCHD.
