If Anyone's Lost Some Scots DG Pipes & Drums...
... I know where they are.
! saw them play at the Hong Kong International Military Tattoo last night. It was a good programme
Is this the odddest headgear in the British Army? Wiki - "The bass drummer of the Pipes and Drums however wears a distinctive white bearskin with a red hackle. The white bearskin was given to the Regiment by Tsar Nicholas II in 1894, on his becoming Colonel in Chief of The Royal Scots Greys."
Nicholas must have hated them.
(BTW, if anyone know the Piper who was at the public Meet-and-Greet beforehand please tell hm he's a miserable twat who looked as though a dog had pissed on his mouthpiece. He's as good an ambassador for the UK as Tony Blair. I'm tempted to post his photo but I won't).
