A recent trip to France
Posted: Tue Jan 02, 2007 11:07 pm
In November 2006, my band (Black Watch Army Cadet Force Pipes & Drums) were invited to France to play for some of the Rememberance day parades & take in a few battlefield tours and do a wee bit PR with the locals of Valenciennes. The trip was memorablefor us all for many different reasons. I wrote a tune to commemorate our visit and intended to give it to the Somme Battlefied Pipe Band, with whom we played, at the end of the visit. However, it was decided to present the tune to the Commander of the Barracks that we stayed in, in the centre of Valenciennes, by wayof thanks for the wonderful hospitality we wer shown during our week there.
