We are very sorry to announce the death of Jim Buchanan, who died after a brief illness on August 1st. Jim served tirelessly on the LBPS Committee for many years, both as secretary and Chairman. He attended nearly all the Society’s events and was much loved by all who met him; his warmth, geniality, wit and enthusiasm were infectious. He was happily married to Ann and was enormously proud of their three daughters and their grand children. He will be sadly missed.
A welcome update to this ongoing tale.
We are delighted to report that the piper's head has been found and plans are being re-invigorated to restore this unique item of Scottish cultre to its former glory.
