Scottish Tartans World Register: Air Force, Royal 
Air Force , Royal   WR2123



This tartan has been called the RAF tartan since at least 1988 when the MP for North Tayside Bill Walker (nickname Biggles) wore it to the State opening of parliament in order to promote its use. The design was by Arthur Mackie for Strathmore Woollen Co, Forfar but was not officially recognised by the Ministry of Defense. In 2001 it appears to have achieved some recognition in that it was adopted by the RAF Pipe Bands. The proceeds of its marketing goes to the RAFA charity fund. It is open to anyone to use who may wish to wear it and benefit the charity.
The source of tartan 2123 was: Arthur Mackie for Strathmore Woollen Co, Forfar
