BCPA Region Pipe Bands & Remembrance / Veteran’s Day 2018

It is one of the busiest days of the year for pipe bands all over British Columbia. From Revelstoke to Vancouver Island, and in Washington and Oregon dozens of pipe bands and solo pipers took to the streets and cenotaph’s as we commemorated 100-years since the signing of the armistice ending World War I. Here’s a brief look at a very busy Sunday, November 11, 2018, with BCPA region pipe bands providing piping for cenotaph and memorial services around the region.  Pictures are also included in a commemorative photo album located here. Thank you to all our pipers, young and old, for continuing a long history.
