Win a T-shirt [ooooooh]: Vintage Old School Pipe Band Photo

Here’s a photo I just stumbled on. This photo was taken in Glasgow – by me – in a flat that I can assure you faced the infamous Rottenrow. Lots of well-kent, yet mostly fresh, young faces.

78th FHPB - Aug 19XX  - Rottenrow Glasgow

I have 10 – that’s t-e-n – super-cool T-shirts at the ready for the first lucky (10) well-versed in pipe band history to identify the following – tell me:

– the year the photo was taken (within 3 years) and
– the name of at least four of the people in the photo – ASIDE from Jenny Hazzard.

Guess right and score a T-shirt – postage paid (XL-L-M-S sizes only).

Really. Does it get better than that?



  1. Hmmm….I’m thinking 1989.
    L-R: Bill Livingstone, Jenny Haz, Jim McGillvray (with his first Vintage chanter), Andrew Bonar (played in 78thFH while at school in ON), Stu Liddell (ON), ?, Bruce Gandy.

    Who’s drinking the vodka? Scandalous.

  3. Bill Livingstone, Jim McGillivray, Andrew Bonar and Bruce Gandy. Who are the other 2 guys? Hard to make them out! For the year I would guess sometime early-mid 90s? Maybe 1995?

  4. Having seen the aforementioned super-cool t-shirt, I can say it’s worth the effort to try and disentangle and name the heads in the pic for a chance to win one!

  5. It was 1991. Thanks to all who sent notes … no one guessed the correct year so the first 10 got shirts. M
