JUNIOR LEADER'S REGIMENT
ROYAL CORPS OF SIGNALS
1960 - 1967
I have already made note of the Clan Grant Plaid Brooch that is worn by the Queens Gurkha Signals Corps of Pipes and Drums and also worn by Pipers of the Junior Leader's Regiment, Royal Corps of Signals in a separate entry on this web site.
The above illustration shows the embellishments worn by the Junior Leader's Regiment, Royal Corps of Signals Pipe Band from it's inception in 1960 until the Regiment closed down in 1967. This form of dress was introduced by the founder of the band, being the C.O. of the Regiment at the time Lt. Col. L H M Gregory MBE. He was also the founder of the Queens Gurkha Signals Pipe Band in 1952.
The embellishments that are worn by Senior Pipe Sergeant Rod Mathieson as shown below are the Baldric Belt (cross belt) the Clan Grant Plaid Brooch and the Royal Corps of Signals cap badge that was worn on the black silk rosette on the Glengarry cap with a pair of nine inch cock feathers. I have also added an old 1958 photo of a Gurkha Signals piper wearing the same Clan Grant Plaid Brooch and Baldric Belt.
