    Humorous Anecdote

    Last Saturday was the memorial service for a family friend, Ron, who has lived a great life. He was 91 at his passing.

    Per his wishes, Greg-the-Piper from the Windsor Police Pipe Band was there and he played wonderfully. There was nae a dry eye in the place. He was kilted and, I was too. He was in a tartan that was greens and browns, predominantly, I can't name it and we didn't have the chance to talk after he'd played. He left quickly as he'd likely something else on his plate.

    I was wearing Heritage of Scotland...

    During the course of the post memorial service meal, since I was on the end of our table, I was tasked with rounding stuff up for others at the table. I'm on my way back to the table with desserts for Dr. John and Jan and, and... A man swung around in his chair and said to me, "Great job! You sounded really good." I said, "Thanks but... I wasn't the piper." He blushed and turned back around.

    Is it true that when we're kilted we all look alike?

    Hmmm...

    At one time or another, we all resemble that remark.

    Greg was probably wearing his personal kilt rather than the band kilt, because the band wears Red Gordon.

    Here's the Windsor Police Pipe Band page http://www.windsorpolicepipeband.com/ and on the right is Pipe Sergeant Greg Pearson, who was probably your man! He's in band uniform with the Red Gordon kilt.

    I'm curious about this "greens and browns" tartan.

    The only one that comes to mind is MacKinnon Hunting https://www.lochcarron.co.uk/mackinn...SABEgIs3vD_BwE

    Isle Of Skye has brown and three different greens, but also purple. (Below, yours truly.)
