    Ron,

    Great pics! If I may ask, from what sources do you find your photos? eBay is a good source of vintage photos and postcards.

    Ron,

    Excellent find! This is undoubtedly the 2nd Bn at Umballa (if the 1904 dating is correct) as evidenced by the red serge frock worn by the sergeant-dancer and the green serge frock worn by the Pipe Major; the serge frocks would have been worn in India during the cold weather months with a white frock of drill material worn in hot weather review order after 1901. That is, I believe, PM McDougall resplendent in his competition medals. I enclose a photo taken a few years later at Peshawar in 1907 with PM McDougall in the front row at the center seated to the right of the officer in mounted dress who is likely the president of the pipes committee. You can count 21 pipers, quite a contrast to the numbers who would turn out today.

    Regards,
    Mike
