Re: Accrington Pipe Band

Andrew has his pipes in USA and entertains his friends with them - they love it.

He is one of the main organisers of the Burningman art festival (hence he is 'Burningman' here). He earns his living painting murals, is very talented, and I am proud that he counts me as a friend.

I certainly remember John Tinnion and his lovely wife. Wish I could remember names to faces..... I do however remember Eric Fletcher and both his sons Terry & Jason. There was also a piper called Eddie, he was Irish, can't for the life in me remember his surname. His son Phil played the side drum for a while too!
Wasn't Roger Coldridge the Drum major for a long time, before Harry Pilkington? Then there was Jimmy Crabtree and his son Steven who's Sadly passed away now, poor lad!
Can't remember anymore Sure did love it though.

Adrian, I would doubt that the picture was taken in 1957. Roger Edwards was a big mate of mine back in the 60's and he's the same age as me. In fact, his mum and my mum were in Rough Lee at the same time in March, 1951. That would make him 6 in 1957 and although he was a big lad, he wasn't that big!

Not really sure what Facebook's got to do with it, but I would date that photo around 1963.
