Royal Navys HMS Edinburgh To Appoint Piper

HMS Edinburgh
Bagpipes and tartan trews are set to replace whistles and blues after the Royal Navy appointed its first ship's piper on HMS Edinburgh. Commander Scott Verney has ordered his officers to wear Royal Scots tartan trews for mess dress. A sailor will be sent to learn the bagpipes and the ship will showcase its new piper as it sails into each port.
