Dave Stapleton
  Can anyone help please? I am looking for information about a piece of music played on the Pipes and Drums called "The Heroes of Wickenby" composed by DB MacCutcheon. It is included on an album called "Amazing Grace" by the Beeston Pipe and Drum Band but a contact for the band cannot help. I am wondering if there is a connection to RAF Wickenby where two Lancaster Squadrons were based during WWII. If you have any info please get in touch. Thank You.

Northern Minnesota Outstanding collection of Piobreachead in .bmw format.

USA @ the moment Hi John,
Just a quick note, we're on holiday in San Diego at the moment, I heard the sad news about Gordon Duncan last Wednesday, sadly we will still be here at the time of the funeral, so , could you pass on our condolences to Gordons family and friends, like you we would have attended the funeral had we still been in the UK. I will speak with you when we return in January.
Pauline and Owen Nash.

Salt Lake City, Utah I really like this site and have been using it for a couple of years now. Certain competition tunes are only available here for download to the best of my knowledge, so thank you!
Although I live in the U.S. I am from Gloucestershire originally and my mother was born in Leicester, so we have a connection there. One small question: Will the piobaireachd links all be working soon? I am keen to get the music for Lament for the Harp Tree, but I get a 404 right now. Thanks, and keep up the good work. I really appreciate it.

Inverness, Scotland Hi there John. I received a link from Dave Conner - our pipe band secretary which directed me to the wee story you have about my wedding day on your web site and my composition of 'Norman MacRae's Farewell to Freedom'. Its amazing to think that my tune has travelled around the world. My husband was very surprised on the day and I was so glad I composed the tune. Hard to believe it was 2 and half years ago now. Thank you for interest. Angela MacRae
