Default Has there been a Pipe Band in the Australian Navy?

Does anyone know if there has ever been a Pipe Band in the Australian Navy (regular or reserve)? There is a Pipe Band in R.A.A.F Amberley (established 1994) and there was one in the 1960's in R.A.A.F. Darwin, and I hope there are still some Pipe Bands left in the Army!

The RAN has had bands but not sure if they had a pipe band. I don't recall ever seeing of sailors playing bagpipes.
