Here is another undated picture of the Band at Civic Week.

Good to see that utility companies have always been patching the road!

Some familiar faces here; anyone identify the people and year? Bonus point for name and number of the policeman. And a further point for make and model of car behind Bob Lillie.

Civic Week 1966, a photo by coldstreampipeband on Flickr.
Gordon thought the photo last week was from 1966 but James thinks it is 1968 (Dave Smail on the side drum. Colin Forsyth on tenor Barry Gold Coldstreamer, W Moore left hand man, Dave Young Right Hand Man. Noticed a very young Billy Rutherford on side drum as well).
