NH Dave army surplus tough cotton combat kilts? (34) RE: army surplus tough cotton combat kilts? 23 May 06


They weren't a practical item of wear during the first war, Arthur, what with the trench warfare and the mud. I have heard that the bottoms of the kilts became caked with the mud, and started great sores around the legs of the wearers. Still the Hihland Regiments hand to be ORDERED into trousers.
