Sorry, that was meant to be my last posting but don’t know if I ever mentionned this costume.
It’s maybe a strange one to talk about, given the beauty and intricacy of some of the others and I almost didn’t see it as a costume at the time, just clothes, because for me it’s the one that is so perfect. It’s the scene where Frank & Claire are visiting Culloden.
Frank is wearing a raincoat and hat. This British Pathe news clip of 1951 shows a man being interviewed wearing exactly the same, in exactly the same way, from about 38 seconds in. And his name – Frank!
Must now exert great willpower not to add another post…
