    I am compiling a list of Pipe Majors of military Pipes & Drums worldwide and have at the moment details of over 1800 Pipe Majors. I would like to know the names of the past and present Pipe Majors in the Indian Army. Can anyone help me?
    Thanks and regards

    What is a Pipe Major? I am sorry, I am not aware of this term.

    I know what is a bagpiper and a bagpipe.

    Pipe Majors in the Indian Army

    I am new to this forum and I live in Scotland, just west of the capital Edinburgh.
    My interest is Pipe Majors of military Pipes & Drums worldwide and I have at the moment details of over 1800 Pipe Majors. Although I know that most infantry battalions and Regimental Centres in India have a Pipe Band (often called Pipes & Drums) I have very little information about their Pipe Majors, with the exception of the 4th Battalion of the 3rd Gorkha Rifles (I have a complete list since 1964). The Pipe Major is the director of bagpipe music in a Pipe Band, although in some countries they may have a different title.
    I would also like to know if any of the Indian military Pipes & Drums have released CDs.
    Your help will be appreciated.

    Perhaps you should send a PM to Ray Sir. His user id is 'Ray' and he probably knows.
