Pipes and Drums of the ACF Beat the Retreat in Dingwall

Mrs Janet Bowen, Lord Lieutenant of Ross and Cromarty, took the salute on the occasion of the Pipes and Drums of the Army Cadet Force Beating the Retreat at Dingwall on Friday 5 April.

She was accompanied on the saluting base by Col Alastair Campbell.

The cadets from both Army and Air Cadets had attended a one week intensive course at Cameron Barracks, Inverness and Dingwall was their first public performance, prior to Beating the Retreat in Inverness and the Edinburgh Castle.

The event was arranged by the Highland Council with the Convener, Jimmy Gray, in attendance with other councillors.

A large and appreciative audience watched the Beating of the Retreat in warm sunshine.

Following the parade Mrs Bowen attended tea with cadets, talking to many and then spoke of Dingwall's military credentials and reminded the cadets that they walked in the footsteps, specifically in those of the Seaforth Highlanders who would have paraded through Dingwall in their day, and gone into action to the skirl of the pipes.
