MacKay, P/M Hugh
C.A. Malcolm’s “The Piper in Peace and War” says “MacKay, Hugh – Piper, 71st Highlanders, in 1840; was later P/M Stirlingshire Militia. Composed “Stirlingshire Militia Quickstep”, “Prince of Wales” and “Welcome to Holyrood Palace”. There is a passing reference to him in the papers of Donald Cameron’s family now at the National Library, saying that he “died young”, so it seems that a leading Victorian piping dynasty did not even then know his date of death”.
