Figure 1.--This Russian boy in the 1980s wears the full formal Soviet Pioneer uniform. Available images suggest that the full uniform was not commonly worn by most boys.
I do not know of any Pioneer bands or band competions as sometimes practiced in Scouting. Some Pioneer units, however, seem to have bugglers or perhaps small band units. We have, for example, noted Pioneer drummers. More information is needed here. Hopefully some Russian readers will elp us with information here. The boys involved would normally wear the full formal uniform. Available images suggest that the full uniform was not commonly worn by most boys. It was mostly chosen boys involved in ceremonies that would wear the full uniform.
