A heavy wool constructed kilt in a Hodden Grey Tartan pattern. To the interior, a white fully lined waist measuring approximately X inches. Sewn to the edges of the liner are the remains of a fully intact leather strap, and to the opposite side the remains of an additional strap. Included with the kilt are two black leather straps that came with the kilt. To the exterior, two fully functioning buckles to the rear. As pictured, there are small scattered areas of mothing present but are hidden from view when placed on a mannequin.
Constructed of non-magnetic meganese and a steel rim, this second pattern Mk. I retains the majority of exterior finish. Inside, the liner remains largely intact though the chinstrap has been lost to time. Though the leather is slightly dry, the oil cloth remains supple, and netting is in tact. The helmet supplier is stamped "BURYS".
