Thread Name: bagpipe music question
Subject: RE: bagpipe music question
Regarding the pibroch for Nurse Edith Cavell, and its author.
For what it's worth:

My search for "Jas. Wilson," at the time the Pipe Major at Queen Victoria School in Dunblane, turned up a webpage containing articles and contributions by Old Victorians / "Old Boys." One 1968 contribution reports the death of Bert Gamack. "Bert was the first boy who actually played the pipes in the School, doing so on the pipes of the then Pipe-Major, J. Wilson, late H.L.I."
Highland Light Infantry perhaps?
