Many years in the making, this beautifully produced, illustrated book is now complete and available for purchase. It is a tribute to over 260 years of Black Watch piping. Established in 1739 the Regiment introduced the tradition of piping into the life of the British Army and the Regiment remained at the forefront of that tradition until its merger with the other Scottish infantry regiments to form the Royal Regiment of Scotland. The book has been compiled by Colonel Sandy Cram, Pipe Major Alistair Duthie, Sir Alistair Irwin and Pipe Major Scott Taylor with much valued input from many others.
This collection of over 250 tunes is the first substantial record of Black Watch pipe music ever to be produced. It includes tunes composed by Black Watch men, tunes whose titles have an association with the history of the Regiment and tunes that formed part of the daily routine and traditions of Black Watch regimental life. It includes favourites such The Queen Mother
