Registration notes: Based on Rothesay #1533 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) dating possibly early 1900s. Adopted by the Baluch Regiment in India, the connection with Fitzgerald being the name of the commanding officer at the time. Has become the Fitzgerald tartan ever since. The 10th Baluch or Baluch Regiment was a regiment of the British Indian Army from 1922 to 1947. After the Partition of India, it was transferred to the Pakistan Army. In 1956, it was amalgamated with the 8th Punjab and Bahawalpur Regiments. During more than a hundred years of military service, the 10th Baluch Regiment acquired an enviable reputation as one of the most distinguished among the fabled regiments of the British Indian Army. Its long list of honours and awards includes four Victoria Crosses. James MacKinlay's book of hand coloured tartan stripes, 1930-1950 is retained in the Scottish Tartans Society archive.
