Default Re: Hair sporran length

Possibly not a hard and fast rule, more of a guideline due to the different sizes of the soldiers.
I was in the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa.
The soldiers and NCOs wore a slightly smaller and shorter horse hair sporran and aimed for about an inch above the kilt hem if I recall.
The band sporrans were bigger all around, and we aimed for about an inch below the kilt hem.
Tall soldiers had no problems, very short soldiers likely pulled out sharp scissors when the RSM & Quartermaster weren't watching...
