Captain John MacLellan Memorial Results (updated)

Pipe Major Ross McCrindle reports: The 6th Annual Captain John A MacLellan memorial contest was held at the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming at Inchdrewer House in Edinburgh today.  Now firmly established as one of the premier solo piping contests in Scotland, a record entry was received with B & C grade contests full to capacity, and the A & P grade contests attracting a strong entry also. The above picture shows the main prizewinners.

Despite the large entry of 76 professional solo pipers, and in now trademark style, the Army School delivered an efficiently run event and the prize giving was underway prior to 5pm. Captain John MacLellan was the first Director of Army Bagpipe Music, setting in motion the legacy that we uphold here at the school every day. Current Director of Army Bagpipe Music, Major Gordon Rowan SCOTS, gave a tribute to Captain John before the Senior Pipe Major, Warrant Officer Class 1 Ross McCrindle Scots Guards, announced the prize winners as follows:
