Scottish Tartans World Register: Black Watch Plaid for Band Regimental  
Black Watch Plaid for Band Regimental   396



The 'Black Watch' has provided the base for many of the Clan tartans. Wilson had a monopoly to supply tartans for the regiments during the period when tartan was proscribed for (male) highlanders not possessing land... It was Wilson's habit to add stripes of various colours to differentiate the regiments he supplied, which, it could be argued, was the birth of the named clan tartan.
The source of tartan 396 was: Wilson's of Bannockburn '1819'
