Un­stop­pable pipe band

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LETTERS -

Sir, I was de­lighted that com­mon sense pre­vailed and the world pipe band cham­pi­ons In­ver­aray and District were al­lowed to march up the main street of their home town - well done the po­lis!

There is some­thing un­stop­pable about a pipe band.

I remember march­ing up the Champs El­y­sees with Oban Lorne Rugby Club, led by a pair of pipers with Scot­tish rugby fans join­ing in from ev­ery side street.

When we got to the Arc de Tri­om­phe, we didn’t re­alise there was an un­der­pass and marched off, bring­ing the no­to­ri­ous traf­fic to a com­plete stand­still.

We ar­rived safely to much ap­plause from by­standers and amazed con­grat­u­la­tions from sev­eral Parisian po­lice­men. David Hay, Mi­nard
