The Lyon recognition of a more recent design is "..specifically without prejudice to the continued use of the hitherto accepted Shaw tartan." This sett was published by McIan (c.1845) in a drawing of Fearcher Shaw of the Black Watch, who was executed for mutiny in 1743. Co-author, James Logan, describes the figure as wearing the 'regimental' tartan with a red line to distinguish the philabeg from the belted plaid. The Shaw tartan, it appears, had been derived from errors in the graphic illustration of the Black Watch.
