I did find a slight issue with the wide sole knocking against my mounted badger sporran initially.

Ah, Dave,

I... too... have an early 50s ABW chanter... made by Bob. :)

And... ain't it grand?!... Ain't it just!! :)

And... since I began... this Great Waltz-About... and there
were only... the great dish-plate soles... I have always been
comfortable with them. :) (My newer chanters do not have such.)

Trusting that the Sergeant's Mess Dinner went swimmingly
well for you... and your 50s Hardie chanter... filled the room!! :)

With regards,


My friends all know,
With what a brave carouse...
