Is there a regular regiment that has a pipe band. I heard that RCR did, but I don't know if they still do.

Fusilier is correct, 2RCR has a very good Pipe band. Only the Pipe Major is a musician, all other members are infantry soldiers serving with the band.

Yes... a fellow graduate of battleschool, went to 2 RCR Pipes and Drums. He was 6A or B qualified on the Pipes as a reserve member, did a component transfer to Reg Force 031 INF course and off to the Gagetown. Great guy.
