I have recently acquired a set of bagpipes with a Black Watch tartan over a red Macrae tartan on the pipes themselves. With the pipes was a Glengarry Bonnet with an officers badge for the Highland Cyclist Battalion T.f. (1908 -1918) and a herringbone red pattern sash of a Warrant Officer Pipe Major. A name on a box of reeds for the pipes . Is Andrew Macrae. Fife. I wonder if any bdy knew who this is or any history.?
