AWPD Debuts new look on ANZAC Day

If you caught the band’s performances at the SS&A Club or the Commercial Club after the wet street marches, you could be forgiven for looking twice. Gone is the green of the Hunting Stewart Tartan the band was worn for 30 years, replace by the Ancient Caledonia we now wear.

AWPD wish to thank our major sponsor in this endeavour – Bee Dee Bags ( They very generously donated a substantial sum to the band for the express purpose of upgrading our uniform. We thank them greatly and urge you to check out their great range of carry bags and accessories!


Friends of the band (and learner piper) Ray Grant and his wife Janece made our flashes, putting in hours of hard work and producing great looking ones that are offset by our socks.

We also wish to thank Federation University Pipe Band for their generous assistance in the uniform look and also our friends at St Kilda Retail for their assistance and prompt help with ordering and getting the uniforms completed.
