Captain John MacLellan Memorial Results

Prizewinners at today’s Captain John

The 8th annual Captain John A MacLellan MBE memorial Piping Championships were held at the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming at Inchdrewer House in Edinburgh today.

The event, one of the premier solo piping contests in the world, received a record entry once again with B & C grade contests full and the A & P grade contests also attracting a very strong entry.

By Senior Pipe Major WO1 Peter MacGregor

The Army School delivered an efficiently run event and the prize giving was underway shortly after 5pm with the prizes presented by Capt John’s son Colin MacLellan. This year’s event was sponsored by McCallum Bagpipes, RG Hardie and Co, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Glenfiddich.

Stuart Liddell took the overall in the P Grade events, Jamie Forester was awarded the ASBM&HD Memorial Trophy for the aggregate over the A grade events. Keith Christie was overall winner in the C grade winning a set of Duncan Macrae bagpipes.

Captain John MacLellan MBE 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 prize winners were announced.
