Royal Visit to the High School in 1958

As the Duke of Edinburgh will be performing his final official engagement today, it seems a good time to recall the Royal Visit to the school back on 4th July 1958. Here are some photos from Schola Regia and the newspapers.

  1. I was the Pipe Major of the school CCF Pipe Band, which played when the Royal party inspected the Cadet Force prior to the other events. I also had the privilege of being the solo piper to play the Royal party off the premises when they departed through the ‘dungeons’. I can be seen in the photograph of the Royal car leaving. The tune chosen for me to play was ‘Happy we’ve been all together’. I played the same tune at the weddings of our 2 sons and our daughter!
