Although a unit or two many have worn kilts for dress, I am not sure a single unit wore kilts on campaign or in battle. So I have to wonder if kilts would have made practical campaign or combat items. Would the feileadh mor (big kilt) been more practical or the Philabeg (little kilt) more practical?
Chiggers would have eaten them alive.
If you would like to discuss this in real time I will be in the Chat Room at 9PM EST.
