Canadian Women's Army Corps Pipe Band


No, I didn't know there was one either. But from May 1943 to 1946 when they were disbanded, Canada had a Women's Army Corps Pipe Band. You can read more about them here. There are a couple of short newsreel videos at the linked site also. Alas, they don't lend themselves to embedding so I can't put them here but you can access the video page and get a sample of their sound. The films also show them wearing a tam, which gives a better look than the picture above.
