That helmet was for the Waffen SS wallahs,.

 

Most reputed evil and vicious commando type operators in the 2nd world war. It was them who tried to stop the allied invaders at the Normandy landings I think and shot the  captured Brits or Canadians behind the hedgerows. Mind you, it has been said that the Allies  did the same thing to the Gerries that they caught so --------- eeksi-peeksie was it?

Back in the Clearance era, did everyone actually wear sporrans in front of kilts of that style? And is the large figure a man or a woman? It sends out mixed messages.

Kind of Blue where is the Redcastle--is it past Nairn way perchance?

About 5 miles west of North Kessock along the shore road.
