Registration notes: Allison Dearness, who was born and bred in the district of Hoxa in Orkney, has designed this tartan, with Lochcarron of Scotland. Prior to the opening of the Churchill barriers (causeways) in 1945, the parish of South Ronaldsay was an island, which was made up of various districts, one of which was, and still is, called Hoxa. Situated on the South West corner of South Ronaldsay, this district is mainly agricultural, although its main claim to fame is that this area houses the remains of the gun emplacements which defended the RN Home Fleet in Scapa Flow during two world wars. As a consequence not only does this district have a prominent part in Orcadian history, but also for the huge numbers of ex servicemen-women who defended Scapa Flow during those wars. This tartan will be available from Allisons Formal Dress Hire Ltd, 105 Rosemount Place, Aberdeen AB25 2YG Email: [email protected]
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
