Tartan Details - Caskie

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Caskie" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 5894
STWR ref: none
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1978
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Name
Registration notes: The guess is that this is possibly to commemorate Donald Caskie (1902 - 1983) known as the Tartan Pimpernell. This version ties in with the colours of the paper strip found in Harry Lindley's papers but not with the proportions which are taken from the count. Found in Agenda for the Lord Lyon's Tartan Committee 4th March 1978. The Caskie and other tartans were from 'petitioners' seeking to have their tartans recorded with Lyon. No other details known. Comment in Agenda says: 'All the Petitioners are Chiefs of the Name except in the case of Caskie. It has been for sometime the practice of Lyon Office not to entertain Pettitions except from Chiefs of the Name.'

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.
