Tartans of the Clan.

"There is a hunting tartan which has a brown ground and is usually worn during the day, and dress Fraser has a red ground, and is for evening wear. Hunting Fraser may be worn in the evening for informal occasions, but it is usual to wear dress Fraser during the day. There are various versions of these, but rarer versions are not commonly obtainable, so no one need worry unduly when buying tartan".(from Clan Fraser by Flora Marjory Fraser)

News from Tasmania

The Tasmanian branch is not a large group so we do not have many meetings. We have 3 functions a year. We have a barbecue later in the year and the last few years it has been held at Oatland at The Drover's Hut. We attend the Highland Gathering on the 3rd Sunday in Februarty at Richmond and the only meeting is the Annual General Meeting. You can see we are not a busy organisation but we do have a lot of fun when we meet.

The Secretary/Treasurer is Mrs. Denice Walter of 34 Hillborough Road, South Hobart.
Our President is Miss Elvie Fraser

Vice President is Mr. Trevor Holton
The Newsletter editor is Elvie Fraser
