Bootneck 350 Tartan Scarf
On the 28th October 1664, King Charles II made a proclamation to raise the Duke of York and Albany’s Maritime Regiment of Foot as a regiment of ‘sharp shooters’. To be deployed aboard Royal Navy vessels, to pick off enemy sailors manning heavy guns in a battle. The Royal Marines of today are the amphibious troops of the Royal Navy, acknowledged as one of the world’s elite Commando forces.
The ‘Bootneck 350 Tartan’ is the only Officially Registered Tartan in the world, to honour all Royal Marines since 1664. Created in the 350th year of The Corps, it continues to march on with love and respect for all ‘Bootnecks’ and is officially recognised by The Royal Marines.
This unique scarf is worn with pride in the UK and worldwide, by former, current, the future Royal Marines and their family, friends and supporters. We have created this Authentic Tartan exclusively for you. Weaving the DNA of the Royal Marines into its very core, by incorporating these historical Corps colours:-
BLUE: Represents the intimate connection with the ‘Royal Navy’.
RED: Is for ‘Drummer Red’, historically worn by the Army.
GREEN: Signifies the infantry green, once worn on the ‘shako’ (a tall cylindrical military cap with a visor).
YELLOW: for ‘Old Gold’ from the dress and ensigns of the Duke of York and Albany’s Maritime Regiment.
BLACK: Is for the continual respect for all fallen Royal Marines.
All our scarves are beautifully wrapped in crisp white tissue paper and popped into our stylish pillow boxes. So when they arrive they are ‘gift ready’. Making it ideal, for us to send direct to your friends, relatives or loved ones, on your behalf, anywhere in the world!
