Historical Research Group

The Historical Research Group, formed in 2006, comprises a small number of individuals interested in unearthing information about the Association and the Pipe Band movement in general. The Group has been gradually developing displays at RSPBA Headquarters which include a wide range of memorabilia relating to Piping, Pipe Band Drumming, Pipe Bands and key individuals who have influenced the development of the Association.  The displays include historical examples of rope tension and rod tension drums, piping and drumming equipment, photographs, written articles about individuals who have been involved with the Association, a collection of DVDs and CDs containing footage and recordings of Pipe Band performances, displays of old competition trophies and a wide range of other material to reflect different stages in the Association's development. The Historical Research Group is always looking for additional contributions.  If anyone has anything of interest to offer please let the Group know through RSPBA Headquarters.
