A heavy wool constructed kilt in the Highland Light Infantry (H.L.I) McKenzie pattern. To the interior, a white fully lined waist showing various markings. Stamped in black ink a War Department broad arrow with a “T” denoting the year 1937. Further along, the date X.4.37 confirms this, stamped below the H.L.I. marking. The waist measures approximately 32 inches and two leather straps with corresponding buckles remain in place. As pictured there is one very small repair on the inside, the photograph of the AAA battery denotes the size of the exterior hole.
The British H.L.I. were the only Highlander unit to be issued trews instead of kilts. Photographs from as late as 1931 suggest that their bagpipers continued to wear the traditional kilt. The Canadian H.L.I. unlike the British were kilted starting in 1935.
