Default Drinking and Piping

BEER IN BAGPIPES

Joseph M'Donald, a street musician of Ayrshire, Scotland, was charged recently at Reigate Police Court, with being drunk and disorderly at night.

Inspector Ash, giving evidence, said that M'Donald had two sets of bagpipes, and the bag of one was filled with beer.

M'Donald was fined 2/6.

The Barrier Miner (Broken Hill, NSW), 29 April 1933.

Long ago and far away, myself and many of my bandmates were known to have a can or two of suds under our feather bonnets. For waiting times, ya understand...

A can or two in the zippered bag, for those long speeches at massed bands.

Mine would taste a little sweet. I haven't put anything in it for over 30 years that I couldn't eat or drink. Never needed a zipper on one.
