Default Information sought on a photo of a band

Hello all,

I've been going through a lot of photographs formerly belonging to my late father and mother, to try and sort them. I came across this photo of a pipe band with, written on the back, the words "Cluney Parks Band". I can find nothing relating to this band. Can anyone help?




From the uniforms, it looks like it's a military band and seems to be playing in a parade ground, perhaps at a barracks. Because of family connections and history, my guess is that it's either in Scotland or, perhaps more likely, the north of Ireland somewhere. The uniforms might suggest a date - perhaps 1930s or 1940s?

I'd be interested in any suggestions.

Many thanks.

S

I have no information on the location except the observation that the 3 buildings are labeled B(?)LAKE, __?__ SICK BAY, _?_ Bay. D. The ? indicates another word preceding Sick Bay and Bay. D.

Yes, that's what made me think it might be either a barracks or a military hospital. However, as I've never been in any military establishment, I have no way of knowing. Seems the most likely explanation though.
