    I have recently joined this forum. My main interest is military Pipes & Drums worldwide and their Pipe Majors. I am compiling a list of Pipe Majors and have at the moment details of just over 2500 P/Ms. But the list is far from complete.
    Are there others on this forum with an interest in Pipes & Drums?

    I was a not-very-good drummer in a local Pipe Band for a few years. I like a good tune but don't miss the politics!
