REGIMENTAL TRADITIONS AND SYMBOLS

The 78th wore red doublets, kilts, sporrans, feather bonnets and red and white checkered hose stockings. Since the regiment was raised by the Head of the Clan MacKenzie and most of the men of the regiment came from the Clan MacKenzie lands in Ross-shire, its tartan was the MacKenzie tartan. The regiment's facings on collar and cuffs were buff, which gave rise to 78th also being known as the Ross-shire Buffs. In keeping with the contemporary custom, the regimental pipers wore contrasting green uniforms.
