'Soldiers learning to play the bagpipes have been told to limit their practice sessions to only 24 minutes a day, or 15 minutes when indoors.'

'Pipers will also have to wear ear plugs under the new guidelines brought in by health and safety officials.'

'The advice, aimed at preventing soldiers from suffering hearing problems, was issued after a study by the Army Medical Directorate environmental health team.'

Telegraph leader -

'Health and safety is becoming the chief purpose of the Armed Forces. Our troops may not fire loud guns too often, nor be exposed to harrowing sights.....the cowardice and officiousness of the latest ruling doesn't bear thinking about.'
