HBC at this time does not have good information on the garments worn by Scottish Scouts and Cubs. We have noted Scottish Scouts wearing the same green shirtsworn by English Scouts. We are not sure if this represents a different level of Scouting or if the Scottish Scouts had a differnt uniform than worn by English Scouts (figure 1). I'm not sure about the official headwear. The kilt is generally asociated with Scottish Scouts. We note many images of Scottish Scouts with boys wearing both short pants and kilts. We note few images of Cubs wearing kilts. We note Scouts wearing kilts from very early period in Scottish Scouting. The kilt is worn by many Scottish Scouts, especially for dress occassions. Scottish Scouts also wear them to international events like Jamborees. When roughing it, the kilt is usually put away and more conventional uniforms worn. Scottish Cubs wear the same uniform as English Scouts, although a badge identifies them as Scottish. Scottish Cubs have also worn kilts, but not as commonly as the older Scouts.
Scottish Cubs always seemto have wore the standard peaked cap. We have not noted Cubs wearing Glengares like some Scottih Scouts. We note few images of Cubs wearing kilts. Scottish Cubs have also worn kilts, but not as commonly as the older Scouts. Almost always Sottish Cubs wore the exact same uniform as English Cubs.
