For any piper who is an Army veteran and performs at ceremonial events, this short-sleeved silvertan shirt by the reputable uniform manufacturer Flying Cross is perfect for your military-themed performances. It’s 65% dacron polyester, 35% rayon, machine washable and is in “like new” condition. It has two permanent military creases at front and three at rear, and bears a “CHP approved” label signifying approval for use by the California Highway Patrol. Whether at a veteran’s hot weather committal service, a Memorial Day observance or other patriotic event, when appearing as a piper this shirt is the ideal garment to add to your kilted outfit. You can sew and pin your military insignia, decorations and badges in the appropriate locations, as is better shown when you click on to expand the pictures. (Mine, shown here, will be removed before shipping). The three cloth patches (bagpiper, flag, Army veteran) shown in the pictures are included. You can also add a shoulder cord (I have them in various colors) and either a black or appropriately colored branch scarf. I have several, as well as a reduced size Army officer’s cap insignia which fits perfectly on the cockade rosette of a glengarry. Ask me about these accessories.
For a deceased veteran’s solemn occasion I always ask the family if they wish me to appear in civilian dress or in Army veteran’s kilted attire; it’s an option they appreciate regardless of their choice. I also have a long-sleeved shirt with a piper sleeve patch plus the same American flag and Army veteran shoulder patches. It can also be worn with a branch scarf, or with a brown or black long tie (I have both; ask me.) Postage for delivery within the U.S. adds $10. Payment can be by Zelle or PayPal. Thanks for looking.
