Who said tights are just for women?!? It’s one thing to wear your kilt and feel the breeze on your bare legs when you are up in the glen, but it’s quite another to have your skin exposed if you find yourself in the trenches under gas attack. Apparently Scottish soldiers decided that if they had to choose between having people laugh at them or suffering 3rd degree burns, they would go for the former, thank you very much. [Plus, given the reputation of the Scottish soldiers, I somehow feel that others would think twice before making fun of them… 🙂 ]
