Trib­ute to hero piper would be fit­ting

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, In my ar­ti­cle on Wil­lie Lawrie in The Oban Times of July 7, I wrote that Mrs Mac­don­ald of Du­nach was from Tote on Skye. She was ac­tu­ally a Mac­don- ald from Ord on the Sleat penin­sula on Skye.

It would be a fit­ting trib­ute if a me­mo­rial to Pipe Ma­jor Wil­lie Lawrie, in the form of a tro­phy to be com­peted for an­nu­ally in one of the pip­ing com­pe­ti­tions at the Ar­gyll­shire Gath­er­ing, could be awarded in Wil­lie’s mem­ory to mark his un­ri­valled con­tri­bu­tion to pipe com­po­si­tion in peace and war.

Dr Lorn Mac­in­tyre, St An­drews, Fife.
