Title: McLea name variant -- a new one

Hi Kyle, 
There is some variance in the pattern and the arrangement of the tartan, but the old McColl and Livingstone tartan ir remarkably similar. I can't say whether prior to the Battle of Culloden who was wearing red and green tartan in battle, but it is noted that in 1704 the Laird of the Grant Clan requested that his tenants wear red and green tartan with broad strips in battle, perhaps indicating that red and green was considered by a number of clans as appropriate colours to include in a tartan worn in battle. Although the British banned the tartan for many years after the Battle of Culloden, and much of the tartan weaving tradition was lost and forgotten, fragments worn at the Battle of Culloden were known to have been saved and survived years later and were an inspiration for the patterns for later Clan tartans. Anyways food for thought Kyle for another time. 

regards

Donald
