254 Takes A “Walk” Through the Past

On the Cadet training day following Remembrance Day, there is always a difference in the Corps.  Even though we did not have the opportunity to march downtown this year, the Corps displayed a level of steadiness and determination on parade that would be the envy of many military units.  Having gone through the Remembrance Day Service there is a new energy in the Corps.  They had passed the big test.  On the opening march past for this week, the arms were a little higher, the sword drill had more snap to it and the Cadets were moving as one unit.  Once the drill ended the business of training got underway.  

The Pipes and Drums band decided to spice things up a bit this week and take a page from the history of Highland units.  Under the professional tutelage of Ms Meghan Keoughan, our young pipers engaged in the age-old tradition of the Highland Dance.  Ms Keoughan is an excellent Highland Dancer.  She has accompanied our pipers in the past and performed the Sword Dance at our Cadet Mess Dinners.  This week, she engaged the entire Pipe Band in the movements.  The cadets showed some hesitation at first but quickly warmed up to the task at hand, learning the steps and moving to the music of the bagpipes.  

Young Ann MacQuarrie stole the show this week, excelling at the dance and paying it forward by teaching the steps to the second shift of dancers.

Bagpipers and the Highland Dance.  What a great day to take a walk through history as a Cadet in the 254.

I hope you enjoy this video from last year.
