Ireland[edit]

Don't know if it's worth mentioning but Cavalry units in the Irish Defence Forces wear the Glengarry as well as all Commissioned Officers in the Irish Reserve Defence Forces.

Illustration[edit]

This painting is a poor illustration. I can't discern any feature of the cap; it looks like a "pillbox" hat askew. Sobolewski 21:10, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

I think the painting is there as a representation of the man who's credited with inventing the hat. There's a good photograph below of an example of the hat itself.

    • The Macdonnel portrait illustrates the question that hangs over early images; whether what have been claimed to be early glengarries were in fact just a differently cocked bonnet from which the true, folding glengarry later derived.JF42 (talk) 09:41, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Why?[edit]

Why is the picture "An Inspection of the Eastern Reserve Brigade Guard of Honour By President Mary McAleese on the 93rd anniversary of the 1916 Rising on O'Connell Street in Dublin", included. No one is wearing a Glengarry. Kiltpin (talk) 12:26, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

There are many issues with this whole article. A quote from the current The Royal Regiment of Scotland - Dress Regulations: "The Regiment wears the green, white and red dicing previously worn by the Royal Scots, Kings Own Scottish Borderers, Royal Scots Fusiliers, Royal Highland Fusiliers, Seaforth Highlanders and Gordon Highlanders. It is worn at an angle slightly down on the right." Every British Army glengarry I have seen or held (I own two) is black not blue. But the page says blue three times. I think it is wrong. I also think that the dicing (as written) is wrong and the method of wearing is wrong. From this alone, I do not think we can trust any of the information on this page. It all needs to be put under the microscope and checked. Kiltpin (talk) 12:50, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
