We [somewhere in Germany] are not a Branch, but I can say that our
dancers (and those from other local groups on whom we are obliged to
call to make up a set for such occasions) provide their own costumes
whenever they participate in a demo.
Usually the ladies will turn out in white dresses and sashes if possible, not
of uniform style or tartan, and the men will wear tartans of their own
choosing, their remaining dress being at a more or less uniform "level of
elaboration" according to whatever they jointly have available.
The same is true of some other groups in this part of Germany too. I cannot
speak for all.
