One thought on “Scottish Pipers’ Association Annual Professional Contest – Full Results”

  1. March of the British legion was composed by my grandfather Walter James cowan(ex scots guards). He don’t think it was good enough to win a composition contest and his brother Jack (ex KOSB)entered it in the competition. It won the contest. So it was Ross’s grandfather that entered the tune but didn’t compose it.

    Thanks
