The Band's Official Crest



Click image to enlarge

I found this in a book I have at home. Occasionally there is a discussion at Band about the crest on the bass drum, well here is the official wording, from a book called "Elizabeth Garden City".

I am pretty sure we would be the sole custodians using this crest representing the area of Elizabeth.

The piping world is full of tradition, so I feel we should hang on to this unique piece of Elizabeth history, by continuing to use it.

An excellent idea Andrew.

The crest on our bass drum was painted by the well known Elizabeth artist and sculptor Frank Boyle (father of Simon, who joined the band as a young boy and developed into an excellent piper).

Frank was a leading light in the local artistic community for many years before his death.
