Gordon Highlander Kilts.

    I can see from a number of references that the Gordon Highlanders wore two different sets on the kilts:- one with 2 gold (yellow) vertical lines seen at the front of the kilt and one with 3 vertical lines.
    1. Did these difference come in from the 75th Regiment of foot and from the 92nd The Gordon Highlanders on their linking under the Cardwell reforms?
    2. Would particularly like to know to what regiment then battalion did these sets belong?
    or
    3. When they linked together in 1881 did the officers, SNCOS and musicians wear one set and the soldiers the other(and which way round) in both battalions?
    I am also particularly interested what set was worn by the 92nd at Waterloo. The answer to 2 above should resolve this matter.

    Many Thanks for an explanation of the above.

    Can't help with some of your queries but this might be useful. This kilt and sporran belonged to Lieutenant John Bramwell, who
    served with the 92nd from 1813 – 17. He was severely wounded at the Battle of Quatre Bras and had his right leg amputated.
