The Targe, decorated round
leather covered wooden disc, was the shield of the Scots. The
design on the targe was specific to his clan, just like the
tartan of his kilt. This Clan MacLachlan
Targe design has been historically researched. The
original is from a painting at the Royal Academy of Art in London,
England. The shield is leather covered, front and back, adorned
with the solid brass studs, brass plates and dome.
