About the video from 13 November, one thing that jumps out is how large the Pipes & Drums are.

Military pipe bands did vary, and usually were rather larger than the original establishment of 6 pipers, generally around 14 pipers.

But I think there are 20 or 21 pipers there! That's the "enormous" size of our current Grade One civilian pipe bands that so many people are complaining about.

The Pipe Major was James Anderson, a very large man, who I'm told was gifted with an excellent musical ear, being able to immediately play on the pipes any melody he heard.
