Goldmedallist (1860) and winner of the 'prize pipe' (1857) at the Northern Meeting. Member of the famous MacLennan piping family.
For your information, I have Alexander MacLennan (1811-1896) listed as Pipe Major as follows:
1843-1854: 74th Highland Regiment
1855-1881: 76th (Highland Light Infantry) Militia
1881-1889: Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, 2nd Bn
