Erskine 1916: Regimental Quilt

By Bethany Lane, University of Glasgow MSc Museum Studies postgraduate student

Blog - QuiltThis regimental quilt was an entry in the Domestic Welfare Exhibition, which was on from 13th October to 1st November 1924. The exhibition showcased arts, crafts, building trades, furnishings and photographs. The highlight of the exhibition was a steel house, which made front page news. For the three weeks it was open, there was an extensive musical programme led by the band from the 2nd Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. This quilt was awarded ‘special’ second prize by the judges.
