Some Piping for the Tail End of the Weekend

Some pipe marches from an old recording of the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders. The Camerons merged with the Seaforth Highlanders in 1961 so this recording can't be any later than that. Note the lower pitch of the pipes as compared to more modern pipe bands such as The Highlanders band - the Cameron's lineal descendants - posted here for February 12, 2011. It sounds like they were still playing the old rope-tension side drums, too.
