Registration notes: The Bon Scott Heritage tartan was created to commemorate the life of Ronald Belford "Bon" Scott (09/07/1946 – 19/02/1980). It is intended to be a representation of his Scottish ancestry, his early influences, and the historic homeland and culture of his family. After emigrating to Western Australia, Bon never lost the connection to his birthplace and was in fact nicknamed Bon Scott in primary school as a nod to his Scottish roots (‘Bonnie Scotland’). His strong bond to his birthplace (Kirriemuir) and wardrobe of choice (mostly denim) are intended to be reflected in this tartan pattern.
