Irish Defence Force Pipers on a route march, 1939. A mix of two droned warpipes and three droned highland pipes.

Below are two pages from the 1950's in the Faugh a Ballagh, the Journal of the Royal Irish Fusiliers.




Above is a photo of Billy Roleston of Northern Ireland. He was a chanter maker. He is shown here with a warpipe set with a keyed Boru chanter. Note that he is wearing a saffron kilt and on the table is a caubeen with a hackle and pipers cap badge.
On the table a regular chanter is seen in the middle of the keyed chanters.
Thanks to Charlie Rutan for permission to use the photo from his family collection.
