 The Band is honoured to be affiliated to 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery based at the Royal Citadel thus maintaining the historic link between piping and the Commando forces.  

The aim of the band is to foster and enhance pipe band music for the enjoyment of its members and the public. The band parades in number 2 dress uniform with kilts of Ancient Campbell of Argyll tartan and seeks to achieve high standards in both bearing and drill. The band is a member of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association. 

The band performs at many displays, carnivals and ceremonial events all over the West Country including Plymouth Armed Forces Week, November ceremonies and various shows in the Plymouth Guildhall, the Pavilions and the Royal Citadel.  


The band has a membership of 30 originating from all over the United Kingdom. There are a number of new members undergoing tuition in the pipes and drums. 

The band is under the leadership of Pipe Major Gordon Macaoidh assisted by Pipe Sergeant Eddie Campbell, Drum Sergeant James Scanlon and Band Secretary, Peter J McLachlan.

The Band is particularly anxious to hear from new or experienced pipers and drummers, male or female of all ages, who would like to join this growing and highly successful band now carrying on the great tradition of piping and drumming at Plymouth.
