Pipes and Drums, 1933

The regiment celebrated its 300th year in 1933 and King George V conferred on the Royal Scots pipers the right to wear his personal tartan, the Royal Stewart. Here, the adjutant, Lieutenant A G Mackenzie-Kennedy inspects the ribbons bestowed by the King. He is watched by the drum-major in Kilmarnock bonnet and the pipe-major in a glengarry. The drum-major's sash is ornate and bears regimental battle honours (see Drum-Major's Sash).
