Seaforth Highlanders Patrol Jacket

Seaforth Highlanders Patrol Jacket

Included in Collections: Militaria / Costume / Major Forsyth Balintraid

Object Description

This Patrol Jacket belonged to Major Ian Forsyth of Balintraid, who was Captain of the Invergordon Company of the 4th Seaforth Highlander’s at the outbreak of WW1.
Patrol jackets were worn by officers attending less formal occasions when the full-dress uniform was impractical. Taking part in the Highland Threads project allowed us to get professional photographs of this jacket and many of the other items that belonged to Major Forsyth. The wonderful photography allows us to display these items in great detail for the first time.
These images were created as part of the Highland Threads digital exhibition - an online collection curated from fourteen Highland museum collections that tell the stories of their best costumes. you can visit the full exhibition here -
