Royal Canadian Air Force

The tartan was created in the early 1940s by Group Captain (G/C) Elmer Fullerton, based on the Anderson tartan and the RCAF colours. Approx 16 yards were woven by Loom Crofters of Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada, as a sample. It was approved by the Air Council of RCAF on 21 May 1942. A sample of the tartan was submitted to Lord Lyon, King of Arms in Edinburgh, who wrote that he approved of the tartan and would keep the sample. More of the tartan was woven for the pipers and drummers in the RCAF band. The tartan is now used widely in the RCAF. ITI1343
