I wish I had not cut off the one guy's foot but they are fun to look at in their regalia!

Looks like they are named after Simon Fraser .... I wonder if that is the same person as the University.is named after.
I agree that the band would probably like a copy of that shot. Nicely done.

Thanks, asnow. The Fraser's Regiment definitely predates Simon Fraser and is actually named after the clan which originated in the Inverness area of Scotland.

Thanks, Barefoot, Donna, Bambi and Marko!

well done JAS, looks like the Pipe Major or Pipe Seargent is giving one the pipers a "tuning up", brings back memories - 3 of our 4 sons were highly active for years in the competitive pipe and drum scene (both solo and with various bands) here in Ontario.
