Re: Which pipemaker in these vintage photos?

The bag covers are red in the same photo as it appears on the album cover of the LP "Red Hackle in Concert" by the Red Hackle Pipe Band. John Weatherson was pipe major and a partner of RG Hardie.

Re: When was the First Medley Competition?

I remember reading (somewhere) that the RSPBA started using a medley format in the late 1960s/early 1970s to encourage bands to play the little 2 parted tunes again.

Re: Grenadiers Slow March for Pipes?

That's the "Grenadier's Return". Google "Grenadier's Return" (include quote marks) and click on images. Copies of the score should pop up. Again, you'll have to transcribe.
