<<COMMANDER LOGISTICS SUBMARINE FLOTILLA TEMPORARY MEMORANDUM 03/16 of 25 Aug 2016

...On behalf of RASM, SubFlot is delighted to announce the availability of a unique tartan especially woven to represent the Submarine Service and which has been formally registered in the Scottish Register of Tartans as the Official Tartan of the Royal Navy Submarine Service. An image of the tartan is shown below. The colour scheme has been carefully designed, incorporating black to represent the boats; red, white and blue to represent the RN; green to represent the sea; and gold to represent the coveted submariners’ ‘Dolphins’ badge. Produced by the House of Edgar, this premium quality tartan, as well as a bespoke kilt and trews service for optional wear as part of No. 2 uniform, is now available to all submariners. The material is also available by the metre....BLAH BLAH...

...the Submarine tartan represents one of a number of projects designed to enhance both the esprit-de-corps and corporate identity of the Submarine Service. The material offers a unique opportunity for submariners to differentiate themselves from other members of the Armed Forces and it is hoped that the tartan will become synonymous with the elite force that is the Royal Navy Submarine Service...>>


PJ - Almost dropping his Litre of Buckie, Hamish mumbles incoherently whilst shuffling off into the gloaming.

On Montrose, the officers were allowed to wear Black Watch tartan. Didn't see anyone with a kilt tho, just trousers.
