Response to What about the diced balmoral?

Hello all,
The Tam mentioned before does look like an officers style tam. I have seen several different pictures where officers had a different cut of tam. Where it was a smaller surface area around the Toorie. This is the quickest picture I can find but it appears that the TOS that Major Ewing is wearing is smaller in construction then the Soldiers on the left.

Glengarries on the other hand I have seen mostly on Pipers.

But there is also this picture of the Black Watch of Canada in 1940 where the one soldier coming off the ship is wearing one.

Hope this helps... Cheers
