I collect Scotttish Rifles and 26th mainly, so have a few reference books and histories.
If you are interested Jock, the SR officers frock whose photo I posted, is for sale in the retro clothing shop in Totnes, Devon.

Unfortunately if I had wanted to get another one of these, I'd have to take a long flight to the U.K. from Canada :o But do you happen to know what it is priced at, Frogsmile, I'm just curious to see if it was roughly for what I got mine. That one you showed is in better condition than mine, because that one has shoulder straps are absent on mine and are on that one. Just out of curiosity. Certainly another nice example, that's for sure.

Yes I can imagine. It seems a pity that the interesting Cameronians website, with its collection of photos of uniform items, does not seem to have one of the frock.

They should try to obtain an example for photograph, if they do have an example I don't see as to why they wouldn't photograph and post it on their website. At least we have a few good examples of pictures, and I have my own example to illustrate what they look like.

No, I don't know the price, it's just a retro clothes store with no idea that it's a regimental rather than theatrical uniform. It does have some moth damage.
