Lorne Scots (1970s) Primrose hackle
Lanark & renfrew (1970s) red and white plume hackle
3RCR (later 4RCR) (date unknown) a white hackle (was this a 'brush' type or a feather type?)

Time period?

Ed provided black and white photos of the corps coloured flashes from the 1950s, which you may have seen on my site. I don't believe I've seen an actual example in a collection though I am sure there must be some extant. I mean the very large coloured flashes:

Jason,

Good photos. I have an example of the Asst Instr RCA but not the CF Green cap with white cover. Do you have an example. I note that you also show a GGFG piper (Ceremonial Guard) and I will have to pursue one of these caps for a photograph.

Does anybody have a PLF beret with hackle in their collection?

Clive

Sorry Clive,
I don't have any examples. I've tried to find better photos to no avail. As far as I know the Assistant Instructors-in-Gunnery is a regular CF green forge cap with red band and a navy white cover. I'm not sure if this is the same cover on the following website:
