Tom, WOW, that's an impressive set up. Thanks for going out your way posting this to please us (Me!).

Got to get myself one of those beauties and a sporran badge too.

We all know not every collector is into the old badges and it's nice to see the more modern ones.
Regards Mike

Hi Mike, Not a problem, and I know that there are the same collars on Ebay right now at a decent price.

and I just purchased this Plaid Brooch a week or so ago on Ebay. I never did see this one when I played with the band but heard they were worn.

The current PM is over here in Kandahar at TFK HQ as well as a couple of current and former band mbrs. Once my tour is finished and I return home next month, I'll dig out some 2 CMBG P&D pictures and badges to post.

I recognize a couple of pers such as Scotty Durant, Brian Fisher and maybe Bobby Smith ???

As an aside 1st Motors I am formerly from Windsor, now posted too and living in St. John's NL.
Royal Cdn Dragoon,
Do you remember the names of the Pipe Majors from when you were in 2 CMBG? On my list of their P/Ms I have Peter J. Dick (from 1995) and James H. MacIntyre (till 2004) then Colin S. Clansey (2004-2009). Additional info welcome!
