Nazi SS Pipeband Tartan Discovered

#1
A bolt of the tartan designed for the SS Leibstandarte Pipe Band has been discovered in an archive in Berlin.

Designed at Adolf Hitler's personal request, the tartan features a subtle swastika motif at the 'cross-over of the tartan pattern.



Examples are rare because items of the SS Pipe Band kit were popular souvenirs with Allied soldiers.

I must look at a calender to check what the date is.

And here's a member of the Gälisch Freikorps, manned by discontented oatmeal savages.

Actually, this is no more fictitious than the vast majority of Scottish clan tartans. They were purely a Victorian confection. By the way, porridge wogs, the plaid is highland dress and has **** all to do with Scottish lowlanders who wore breeks (troosers). At one tiime (pre 1746) highlanders wore the belted plaid (feileadh mor). The small kilt as we now know it, was invented by an Englishman for the purposes of foundry work.
So now strut about at weddings with your bollocks heedrum-hodrum.

And while I'm pissed, the vast majority of pipe music is shite. Why? Because the military fucked it up and have continued to **** it up. Pipe bands were unheard of until the military got hold of it. Pipes were either piob bheag (dance music) or piob mhor (the great music - piobaireachd) and solo.

If you go to a piping competition now, you'll get pipers who play by numbers (two, three) because that's how it is. No expression or interpretation required. Go by the book. Even the civvy competitors are expected to salute the judges at the start and the end of the tunes. What utter bollocks.

Ah, the "Foot Highs".

This interesting find might shed light on this rare photo , thought to have been taken near Tarnopol in 1944 .
The otherwise conventional outfit appears to be complemented by the hitherto unexplained netherwear : this is obviously the SS “ Scottisches Tarnrock “ , in very rare “ hackismuster “ pattern .
Note the even rarer “ Distelrune“ ( thistle rune ) adopted by the Freiwillige schottisch Sturmabteilung McBean , a very small Waffen SS unit formed from discontented Gaelic Nationalists amongst British prisoners of war .



The fate of these soldiers in action is unknown.

A quick google of 'ss pipe band' comes up with three hits... all on forums with the exact same posts.

Just saying like.

And the German chappies kilt isn't the same tartan as the pipe bands.

I was OC Prison Guard in Spandau in May 1983 and am now ready to reveal that Rudolf Hess would occasionally wear a kilt in the orchard.

It was his links with Scottish Freemasonry that led to his ill-fated flight in 1941 and why the British refused to let him out for fear of the effect on the Union.

Correct, thats why he wasn't banged up in Edinburgh Castle (close to where he landed/crashed) instead he got the Tower of London treatment, 400+ miles away from where he could ferment trouble.
