The hat at the Conference did belong to Mr Rannie and it now resides with Clydebank Museum. However, I have it on very good authority that he had many such hats.

Sorry for the late reply,   seems like he was a man who knew his hats, would love to think 'the hat'  was somewhere  waiting to be found, like some lost totem, just waiting.....

Taken on the first QE2 gathering.
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
