'S e Roddie Caimbeul de chroit Tollaidh Bhrathainn, Loch Usaidh, fear de na beachdairean mu dheireadh aig Mac Shimidh fhathast beò. Sa chlàr chlaistinneach seo tha e a' cuimhneachadh air Còmhlan-Pìoba Bheachdairean Mhic Shimidh. (Dealbh - Cartùn mu Shaighdearan Fàire MhicShimidh, 1900.)

Roddie: We'd, we'd a character in the pipe band - God he was a great piper too, he wis a wee chappie - was he MacLean or something. He wis quite a nice mannie.

Interviewer: So did you have a pipe band with you?

Roddie: Yes.

Interviewer: All the time?

Roddie: Yes, all the time.

Interviewer: All the time.

Roddie: They were, they were stretcher bearers an things like that, aye. I think it was the best band that was in the army. Mmm-hmm. At least they won everything that they went to anyway, aye. They were mostly all from the islands too, the pipers. An then they played at Balmoral all the time when we wis there with the queen.

Chaidh Beachdairean Mhic Shimidh (na Lovat Scouts) an cur air bhonn an toiseach airson seirbheis ann an Dàrna Cogadh nam Boer ann an 1900 leis an t-16mh MacShimidh no Lòbhat, Sìm Iòseph Friseal. Às dèidh a' chogaidh, ann an 1903, chaidh dà rèisimeid a chruthachadh - Beachdairean Mhic Shimidh den lmh 's den 2a rèisimeid. Bha an dà rèisimeid gu dubh an sàs sa Chiad Chogadh, cho sgileil 's a bha iad ann an cuspaireachd, doòighean na raoin agus seòltachd armailteach. Chaidh tè de na rèisimeidean an leigeil ma sgaoil ann an 1922. San Dàrna Cogadh bha Beachdairean Mhic Shimidh air an gearastanadh sna h-Eileanan Fàro mus deach iad air seirbheis ghnìomhach san Eadailt o 1944 gu deireadh a' chogaidh.
