City of Launceston RSL Pipes and Drums

Band.jpg

The City of Launceston RSL Pipes and Drums is a highland pipe band with a diverse membership.  The non-competitive band encourages, promotes and develops piping and drumming and other facets of Scottish culture and provides an opportunity for people to learn musical instruments, improve their skills and gain confidence.  The Band provides entertainment to the wider community by playing at events and community facilities.

A traditional Scottish band with a common, well turned-out uniform provides a sense of unity, civic pride, and adds ceremony to the spectacle of any event.  With Tasmanian Community Fund support the band were able to replace their 26 year-old uniforms (they were purchased second-hand from Victoria Police 16 years ago).  The replacement uniforms include kilts, Argyle jackets, piper hose (socks), sporrans, belts, ties and glengarries.
