Scottish Roots at Royal College, Colombo?

Item circulated by Ranjith Sirimanne, a Royalist 

If the pipers were playing “Green Hills of Tyrol”, then a group of Sri Lankans would be playing a tune about a Swiss gentleman fighting against the Austrians, composed by an Italian  and played on an instrument proliferated from Scotland but left behind by the Romans as a joke……  using Bagpipes possibly made in Pakistan.

Can’t get much more International than that?

COMMENTS from Royalists and Others are welcome … and note the RED colour here!
