    I understand that there are many Pipe Bands in the Indian Armed Forces, with most infantry regiments having a Pipe Band in each battalion. I am compiling a list of Pipe Majors of military Pipes & Drums worldwide and have at the moment details of around 1700 Pipe Majors. Unfortunately I have no information about Pipe Majors in India. Can anyone help me please? Thanks.

    See my post earlier today. Ideally what I would like to know for each Pipe Major is (if available):
    - Last name and full first/middle names
    - Year from-to as P/M (incl. regiment and battalion)
    - Year and place of birth.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    Interestingly im in Edinburgh too, but was born in Lahore. Upon asking my father he told me that his grandfather (My GGF) was a drum major in the british indian army in Bengal in the 1890's i suppose. His name was Michael Murray..Do you have a record of the Drum Majors in that time period??
    Regards

    Hi Jeremy,
    I do not have any information about Drum Majors, but will see what I can find about your great grandfather. Do you have any other information about him, such as regiment in which he served?
