Default British Columbia Dragoons

I understand that the British Columbia Dragoons had a pipe band from 1955 to 1970.
Does someone know the names of the Pipe Majors and when (year from-to) they were P/M?
Thanks
Aad

Default Re: British Columbia Dragoons

I don't have personal knowledge of the band, but my copy of "Pipe Bands in British Columbia" by Carl Ian Walker, has an entry for the City of Penticton Pipe Band, which became the B.C. Dragoons Pipe Band from 1955 to 1970, as you've said. Pipe Major Gordon Halcrow was pipe major from 1951 to 1956, when Howard Duncan assumed command. He remained PM until 1971, when John Robb took over. There was also a cadet band during the militia period. The article gives quite a bit more information, so p/m me if you'd like more detail.
