Default Forbes of Dundee?

Several years ago, I bought a chanter, 1940's/50's vintage, from my instructor that was marked "Forbes of Dundee". Anyone know anything about the maker?

Get a look at Ringo Bowen's website ... looks like this would be it: http://www.thebagpipemuseum.com/Forbes.html

Thanks for that. The information seems to make sense to me, that chanter tuned nicely together with his 1940's/50's vintage Robertsons
