Pipe Major and Drum Major, c1970

The pipers are dressed in the Royal Stewart tartan which was granted to them in 1933, and have glengarry bonnets with the blackcocks' feather. The piper on the left is the Pipe-Major with extra silver lace on his doublet and a silver cantle to his sporran. The Drum-Major has the Kilmarnock bonnet, worn by the regiment since 1903, as do the drummers at the back. His doublet is blue with silver and blue wings, and 4 silver chevrons on his sleeve, just below an embroidered drum badge. His tartan trews are in the Hunting Stewart sett, worn by the regiment since 1901.
