Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

154 (Scottish) Regiment RLC has made history as the first ever Pipe Band from the Corps, or any of its forming Corps, to perform at the 2017 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

The concept of a band was first mooted in 1934, when it was realised that if the unit was to compete with other Regiments in attracting recruits, the Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) of the Highlands needed to have a band of its own.

Its Commanding Officer; Lieutenant Colonel Tom Harris Hunter, suggested a brass band, however, the Adjutant at the time; Captain Bertie Duckett, suggested that a Pipe Band would be more appropriate for a Highland unit.

The current Regimental Pipes and Drums were reformed in 2017 at the request of its Regimental Sergeant Major; WO1 S J Bowie.  It has led to a significant manning uplift in line with Op FORTIFY and has proven to be the most efficient recruiting tool for the Regiment in a number of years with all of its ranks being RLC tradesman.

The Pipes and Drums continues to grow and is looking forward to further success and high profile events throughout 2018 and beyond.
