Sean and Billy - certainly the Cameronians is very much the same - although sellers like to state 'as No.9 Cdo' or 'No.11 Cdo' - etc which is really just 'window dressing'. My comments arise from examples I have attributed to No.9 Cdo veterans and a No.11 Cdo veteran regarding similarity etc. The hackle was adopted unofficially within No.9 and No.11 Cdos and would have been acquired from suppliers to Cameronians etc - so no difference as you infer.

PS: No.11 Cdo adopted the black hackle before No.9 Cdo and were not pleased when No.9 (many of them 'Sassenach's') joined suit.
