"In my seventieth year as Colonel-in-Chief, I know that this unique and timeless collection of Bagpipe Music, composed by members of this Regiment, will be enjoyed by pipers of all ages, abilities, nationalities and generations. It is both a legacy and a celebration, telling stories of shared experiences, thoughts of home, and of some of the characters who were proud to call themselves Argylls." Elizabeth R, 6th June 2017.
