Who Were They?

Lost and forgotten photos from the past

I know there are some special functions in the US military that dress in a kilt for special occasions, and of course there are probably lots of them in Britain that wear them. However, I have no clue what those functions may be, or if this guy really is military. He looks rather official, but he doesn’t look like the drum major for a marching band, so what could his clothing signify about him? Although the photo is dated May 1956, he looks military enough to me to include in this series.

  3. Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders would be my guess. They have them (still) here in Canada as well Great Britain. To bad you can’t see the patches and pins…then you’d know for sure.
