During the British Empire, spearheaded by British military forces that included Highland regiments, the Scottish Great Highland Bagpipe became famous worldwide. This surge in popularity was promoted by large numbers of pipers trained for military service in the 2nd World War. This surge coincided with a decrease in the popularity of many traditional shapes of bagpipe throughout Europe, which began to be displaced by instruments from the classical tradition and later by gramophone and radio. Bagpipes are considered by the model of the British military, a number of police forces in Scotland, Canada, Australia, and the United States also formed pipe bands. The Dayside Police Pipe band is still in existence, was founded in 1905. In the United Kingdom and Commonwealth Nations such as Canada and New Zealand, the bagpipe is commonly used in the military and is often played in military and government ceremonies. A lot of countries have taken the Highland bagpipe use in their ceremonial military forces, including not restricted to Uganda, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Oman, effectively spreading official military use to Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. In the recent era, revivals of native folk music and dance have become very popular and helped many instruments that were on the brink of extinction to attract new interest, and a lot of bagpipes have promoted from this trend, with a resurge in popularity. In Brittany, the concept of the bagpipe band was appropriated, the Great Highland Bagpipe was demanded to create a Breton interpretation, the bagged. The pipe band idiom has been adopted and applied to the Spanish guitar and Galician guitar as well.
