Opportunities for the employment
of pipers as such were comparatively rare in the course of the Salonika
operations, for obvious reasons. At Karadzakot Zir, however, the 1st
Royal Scots pipers played their companies to the attack on the village,
and the C.O. reported that, in his opinion,
"It was largely due to the presence of the pipers
with the leading wave that the enemy evacuated their trenches and
retired in disorder."
