Registration notes: The Charnley, William Francis tartan is based on the sett of the Clan Douglas tartan due to shooting expeditions for many years with the Earl of Morton, who gave him some Clan Douglas (Ancient) tartan fabric to make trousers and a kilt, now proudly worn. His interest in fishing, shooting and stalking takes place in Inverness-shire and is reflected by the dark blue base of the tartan and the green overchecks. The colour black has been chosen because he likes wearing a black tie at formal events and particularly for his Pingus Dining Club. 3 gold lines have been included in the design because he was Master of the Drapers Company during 2016 – 2017 and the Drapers Company shield has 3 gold sunbeams. In addition, he has 3 gold bunches of grapes on his personal arms granted by the College of Arms.
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.
