I hope this isnt considered spam, because I have a genuine interest in both bagpipes and the official uniform worn by bagpipers. As such, I would like to ask an obscure question regarding the uniform of a bagpiper.
I have always wanted to know- what the name of the white sock-type (for want of a better word) things worn over a bagpipers shoes when in full military uniform/style?
I have included a picture below the cut.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer my question... it has been bugging me for ages, and no amount of googleing or wikipedia searches has been able shed any light on the situation.
