It is with great sadness and shock to learn that one of our Ex Members Alex Connell passed away this morning at the age of 85.
Alex seen here at the 2017 Reunion with Donald MacKenzie and Kerr McQuillan, who played Alex’ drum score for the Angus Lawrie pipe tune DM George Seymour.
I’m sure all our Ex Members send their condolences to his wife Molly and daughter Heather.
I will intimate the funeral details once arranged and known.
Alex and Ian McLellan were the architects of the Strathclyde Police Pipe Bands success.
