I have not seen Dave Mitchells reply to the list regarding
the Cape Town Highlanders, but have news that another
Cape Town Pipe band has been invited to the UK, in July.
The Cape Field Artillery Pipe and Drums Band will play
at the annual Music of the Night Festival at the Royal Citadel
this month, in Plymouth. The regiment was founded in Aug 1857, and is
the oldest reserve artillery regiment in existence in the Commonwealth.
The regiment will affiliate with 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery,
with which it fought,side by side, at the Battle of Tobruk.
The kilt tartan of this Band appears to be the Royal Stuart.
