London (AP) -- It's the kind of shortage that could leave any Army exposed.
It seems there aren't enough ceremonial kilts to go around when Scottish soldiers parade to the sound of the bagpipe.
At last count, there were just 320 kilts for more than 5,000 Scotsmen.
What's causing the shortage? Military officials say defense chiefs haven't revealed which company has won the contract to provide more kilts. So for now, soldiers are being forced to share.
