Regina Police Service Pipes and Drums

The Regina Police Service Pipes & Drums was formed in 1985 and initially instructed by George Crawford and Howard Chamberlain. Initially, the band was made up of police members only, all the new players having learned from scratch. Over time, more experienced pipers and drummer joined from the community, and currently, the band is comprised of mostly civilian members.

We need photos and more history here.
