Default Re: What happened at McCain's memorial service

the guy is wearing full army pipe major's chevrons.
I hope we find out, but I surmise that:

- Bryan Jeffries was to be the piper to play going home (link)
- Bryan Jeffries steps down and gets Jay Smith to do it
- Jay Smith (or someone) says "this is a high profile gig, I better get full doublet/plaid dress".
- The doublet/plaid is not his, and only adds to the variables (if you are not used to playing in a doublet/plaid, it can be very different and cumbersome)
-A last minute rush to perform causes some "mishap", adding to the already uncomfortable situation

I hate very much that it happened, clearly a series of unfortunate events..
