072:Boys Brigade;214Co BB Pipe Band

Episode072:Pipers’Persuasion learned of the BB Exhibition at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow and met Robert Wallace, an old 214 BB man, who took us through the Memorabilia and coincidentally met with Irene who had emigrated to Australia and was back in Glasgow doing some research. Interesting talk. Robert then took us through the highlights of the 214 Co BB Pipe Band a famous juvenile band in its day, spawning many a great piper and drummer.
