Novice question but were drummers, pipers and buglers expected to carry a rifle as well as their instruments?

"Piper John M'Lellan, of the Highland Light Infantry, who is mentioned in Lord Methuen's despatches for bravery while in charge of the stretcher-bearers at Magersfontein, belongs to Dunoon."
