What a treat to see the band at the Edinburgh Tatto, wonderful. As an ex band member I had contacted Pipe Major James Grey to play at my daughters wedding a couple of years ago, that too was very special. I would like to make contact with a former piper named Duncan, I cant think of his surname. John Bowen knows him, I beleive he lives in the Stockport area, can anyone help? Keep up te good work.

My Dad, Jim Forrest, lived for the Manchester Branch Scots Guards Association up until he popped his cloggs in 1994. He looked forward to every band meeting and dwelled in the company of Major Hugh Laing, Wings Morgan, Stan Morris, Bob Lyle, and Jim McDonald. I have wonderful childhood memories of my family life revolving around my Dad and the Scots Guards. I remember Regimental Guardsmen staying at our house the night before the annual Regimental Dinner in Manchester, and also my sister and I taking great pleasure in in polishing and combing our Dads sporan and kilt pin for Burns Night and New Year Eve. I also remember my Dad attending Remembrance Sunday over the years, often as Standard Bearer for the Association. If you need any support or help I would be willing.

Best Regards

Fiona Lynch

Hello this is 3rd time lucky trying again to send you a message. think at 65 it beats me more times than enough. I saw one of your Bandsmen this morning going to Wythenshaw looking great in his kilt. When I returned from church I looked up your website. It is very impressive and takes me right back to my childhood. My father JOHN DAVIDSON WALMSLEY (born in Aberdeen and raised in Liverpool) used to take us to the Tattoo in Edinburgh. Hence my love of the Drums and Bagpipes. Sorry to see your CD is out of stock. I was fascinated in reading your history and listening to the recordings and your contributions on YouTube.
