Default Pipe Majors R.A.F. Germany

I am trying to complete my list of Pipe Majors of the Royal Air Force in Germany and have at the moment the following names:
R.A.F. Bruggen
1990? Stacey, Steve
R.A.F. Gutersloh
1972 – 1973 Henderson, John
1973 – 1975 McNeill, Hugh Johnstone (born 1938 Edinburgh)
1976 – 1978 Hain, Leslie McLaren (born 1954 Dundee)
R.A.F. Laarbruch
1962? Macintosh, John Mackinnon
1968? MacCafferty, Edward
1971? Bishop, Robert
R.A.F. Wildenrath
R.A.F. Germany
? Lee, Hugh Downie (born 1933 Glasgow, died 2006 Winthrop Harbor, U.S.A.)
till 1985 O’Keefe, Mark
1985 – 1987 Hughes, Ian John (born 1952 Rustington)
1987 – 1988 Hain, Leslie McLaren (born 1954 Dundee)
1988 – 1991 Maitland, Michael Peter (born 1956 Torphins)
1991 – 1994 Tait, William Andrew Bruce (born 1954 Carlisle)
1994 – 1997 vacant
1997 – 2000 Tait, William Andrew Bruce (again)
The 4 bands amalgamated in the early 1980s to form RAF Germany. There may be some inaccuracies in this list and I am not sure if/when Hugh Downie Lee was P/M of RAF Germany, although his obituary says he was.
Please let me have your comments/additions.
