    The Pipes and Drums of the Royal Corps of Signals are currently recruiting pipers and drummers, no previous experience necessary.

    Interested applicants should ideally fill the following criteria:

    Rank - Sig - LCpl
    Trade - any R SIGNALS trade

    Open to all Regular and TA Soldiers.

    Selection for Regular Soldiers is held bi-annually and successful applicants will be loaded on to Class 3 Piper or Drummer courses at the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming in Edinburgh.

    I think you will find that higher ranks can. A friend of mine is a current regular who is a WO2 and plays in the band.
  6. I'm a Piper in the band and its Quality, Highly recomend it

    If you are a higher rank you are welcome in the pipes and drums.
    It is easier to get LCpl & Sig to the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming, that is why I stated it in the original post.

    However, we will look at higher ranks on factors such as motivation, attitude and their commanders ability to release them, we are a busy Corps after all.

    We have a Sgt about to go through the Class 3 All Arms Pipers course this year so it is not a closed door.
