Pipes and Drums

The Pipes and Drums of 1 SCOTS have always been an integral part of the Battalion. Throughout history the band has maintained the highest of standards and today they are as much a link to our heritage as a source of pride. They are also a key component of our identity as a Battalion.

The Pipes and Drums is 26 men strong and formed from our D Coy which is our Fire Support Company. When not practicing their craft they can also be found manning the Fire Support Platoon and operating the Battalion’s heavy machine guns.

Are you musical? Do you already play the bagpipes or drums? If so then the Pipes and Drums could well be the place for you. We are always looking for young men with experience of the pipes - regardless of level - to join the Pipes and Drums.

You can also learn to be a piper or drummer through 1 SCOTS. We will put you onto a 6 month course during which you will learn everything that you need to become a competent piper.
