What members do - No.2
Alec Hamilton just happens, in addition to his many other activities, be a drummer in the Mount Gambier RSL Blue Lake Highland Pipe Band.
What's big deal about this is the band is performing at a Military Tattoo in Belgium this year from 19th to 24th September. A highlight of the tour is their participation in the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate Memorial which takes place every evening at 8.00 in Ypres, Flanders, Belgium. Ypres was completely flattened in the 1st World War. 500,000 (yes, half a million) lives were lost, including about 9,000 Australians in a struggle over a few kilometres of land. This will be the first time ever that an Australian band has been asked to perform at this ceremony.
While Alec is up that way, we will try and link him up with Leo Kusters, the owner of a racing Nagari.
