Tartan Details - Culloden Dress #2

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Culloden Dress #2" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 4627
STWR ref: none
Designer: Bain, John
Tartan date: 01/01/1973
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Restrictions:
Registration notes: Designed by John Bain of Peter MacArthur Ltd. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Johnston Collection. A confusing profusion of Culloden tartans exist with various claims as to the source. This fairly standard sett is said (by Gordon Teall in District Tartans) to have been worn by a member of Prince Charles's staff during the battle and to have first been documented by D.W. Stewart in 1893. Despite that, the same design has been attributed to Geoffrey Laird-Portch (Laird-Portch of Scotland) and claimed by Thomas Stewart Gordon of Messrs Thomas Gordon, Glasgow, who claimed to have designed both Culloden Dress (#1323, original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) and Blue Culloden in 1960.

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.
