The only thing different about the Scottish Scout Uniform is that he will
wear a kilt.=20
Quote from Policy Organisation and Rules:
"In Scotland, male members who are entitled to wear uniform, except for
those who wear Sea or Air Scout uniforms, may wear the kilt of any tartan.
Elsewhere, male Cubs, Scouts and Venture Scouts who are entitled by descent
to wear a tartan may wear the kilt and, in Groups in which Male Subs, Scouts
and Venture Scouts are so entitled, the holders of appointments may wear the
kilt of their own or the Scout Tartan.
Rule 53 (a).
Females may wear a tartan skirt subject to similar rules above. However it
shouyld be a pleated skirt in which the tartan is not cut on the cross.
For the Irish: In Northern Irelan members of the Scout Association may wear
the Saffron Kilt. But again not Sea or Air Scouts.
The saffron kilt may not be worn by ladies.
So in effect all you have to do is buy a kilt and a British Scout Shirt or
Hope that answers your query.
Problem is kilts are about the most expensive menswear you can buy. I
priced one in Glasgow about 6 years ago - between =A380.00 - =A3300.00 +.=20
Perhaps one of our Scottish brothers can enlarge on my info.
