    In my study of Highland officers of the Pre 68 era, wearing a waistcoat that was IAW the regulation is the must uncommon things.

    So here are the ones that have red waistcoats, as they were supposed to have.

    As I will attach images, will probably have to make multiple posts......

    Ensign Malcolm MacPherson.

    Non Standard Waistcoats:

    Starting with the 64th. Both Col Loudoun and En Ried wear tartan waistcoats, but perhaps not the same tartan.....

    In the 77th: We have these images of Officers wearing White waistcoats, but also we have the Tailor bills of both Maj and En Grant (Father and Son) having their regimentals made, that specify both white waistcoats, but also lapels. So how updated these images of members of the Montgomery family are, that is up to debate. Even the Diced bonnets could be contemporary t the regiments North American Service. Also see the sketch made prior to the miniture, its shows an aigilette, so perhaps the only update was the change to epaulettes on the Col's painting?
