Product Description

It was in 1795 that The Black Watch is known to have adopted the Red Hackle in its bonnets, the most distinctive feature of the Regiment's uniform. The stories relating to its origin are numerous but it was certainly issued to the men at Royston, Hertfordshire that year. Others began to copy this but in 1822 an Army Order laid down that it was "to be used exclusively by the 42nd Regiment". Since then it has been worn in action in many parts of the World and is a much prized distinguishing mark.

  1. very good qualiy

    Posted by Wendy on 4th Nov 2016

    I was very happy with my order of 2 hackles. The quality was very good. The postage was rather expensive though at almost £5 for a 2nd class large envelope stamp and a small jiffy bag.

    The red hackle is great, delivery was fast and the service was excellent.
    I needed the red hackle, to put with my grandson regimental photo.
    He has just joined the black watch, he is now with his regiment.
    My grandson is a Yorkshire man by birth, he asked to join and is proud to wear the uniform of the black watch.
    Thank you.

  6. Scottish Fest Nad Highland Games - Chicago

    Posted by Douglas Willaim Collins on 22nd Jun 2014

    The Red Hackle was the crowning addition to my Glen Garry which I wore with my Blackwatch kilt while honoring my Grandfather's service in World War I at the Scottish Fest and Highland Games in Itasca, Illinlos (near Chicago). I wear the hackle with pride.
