Aviation Accessories with Air Force Heritage

Posted on February 09 2021

Originally the everyday wear of Highlanders, tartans were first developed in Scotland and were a representation of clan kinship. Each tartan design represents different clans and names and they became popularised as the symbolic national dress of Scotland especially after King George IV wore a tartan kilt in his 1822 visit to Scotland. 
More modern tartans, such as Canadian and US tartans, have a certain symbolic meaning for their colours. Like the colour blue would represent the sky or lakes and rivers, green would represent forests, yellow would represent crops and red was rumoured to be used as the ‘battle tartan’ so blood would not show.
Now you can also keep warm with these symbols of kinship and pieces of national treasure!
We have added to our collection tartan scarves from these prestigious military forces: The United State Air Force (USAF) and the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) !!
United States Air Force Tartan
This tartan was originally created in Strathmore Woolen Mills in 1988 and adopted by the Band of the Air Force Reserve at Dobbins Air Force Base, Georgia in the 1990s. The tartan, originally called “Lady Jane of St Cirus”, isn’t actually formally recognised by the Department of the USAF, however, the design has been widely accepted by the military servicemen and their families with Air Force connections.
Royal Canadian Air Force Tartan
One of the world’s first Air Force tartans! First created in 1942 when Captain Elmer Fullerton, station commander of No. 9 Service Flying Training School in Prince Edward Island, decided to celebrate his Scottish Heritage by organising a Robbie Burns Night. Unable to find a suitable tartan to represent his station band, he requested the famous Wm Anderson (Now Kinloch Anderson) from Scotland to create their own tartan with light and dark blue, and maroon colours. After gaining approval from the Air Force, the Tartan was then sent to Lord Lyon, King of Arms in Edinburgh for approval. Although having no power to officially do this, Lord Lyon merely acknowledged its existence but it was not properly registered. Nevertheless, it became known as the RCAF tartan since 1942 and was officially approved eventually in 2010.
Perfect gift for aviation enthusiasts!

#Tartan 格仔最初是 #蘇格蘭 高地人的日常服裝,代表著家族血統。每個 Tartan圖案設計代表不同的氏族和姓氏,成為了像徵蘇格蘭的民族服裝,特別是在1822年國王喬治四世(King George IV)開始穿蘇格蘭格仔裙之後,蘇格蘭格仔開始流行起來。 
USAF Tartan 最初於1988年由 Strathmore Woollen Mills 創作,並於1990年代被佐治亞州多賓斯空軍基地的空軍預備隊採用。最初被稱為“Lady Jane of St Cirus Tartan”,而至今廣泛被美國空軍樂隊和樂手於制服上所用,用作代表美國空軍。
皇家加拿大空軍Tartan 是 #世界上最早#空軍專用Tartan!創作於1942年,當時 #第9飛行訓練學校 的中隊長 Elmer Fullerton 上尉 舉行 蘇格蘭節日 Robert Burns Night 晚宴以紀念他的蘇格蘭傳統。由於找不到合適的Tartan 來代表樂隊,他請求來自蘇格蘭著名的 Wm Anderson(現在的 Kinloch Anderson)創立自己的淺色,深藍色和紅色的格仔。 在獲得空軍的批准後,格仔被送往愛丁堡由 里昂勳爵 進行批准。 但原來 里昂勳爵 沒有權力正為格仔註冊,只能承認它存在。 儘管如此,此 Tartan 自1942年以來就被稱為 皇家加拿大空軍格仔 RCAF Tartan,並於2010年正式獲得正式註冊。而多年來 Tartan 都是皇家加拿大空軍重要的象徵。
