Registration notes: The tartan was created in the early 1940s by Group Captain (G/C) Elmer Fullerton, based on the Anderson tartan and the RCAF colours. Approx 16 yards were woven by Loom Crofters of Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada, as a sample. It was approved by the Air Council of RCAF on 21 May 1942. A sample of the tartan was submitted to Lord Lyon, King of Arms in Edinburgh, who wrote that he approved of the tartan and would keep the sample. More of the tartan was woven for the pipers and drummers in the RCAF band.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
