The Blackwatch in Indianapolis
Judy and I had the pleasure to see the Blackwatch pipes, drums, and Highland
dancers perform with the Lucknow Band of the Prince of Wales Division last
evening. The crowd was on it's collective feet for most of the show. The
colors, sounds, and display of precision was simply awesome. This was the
first time I have seen the dance of the crossed swords live, it was enough to
stir the Scottish blood. The performers then mingled in the crowd after their
show, chatting and signing the various shirts, c.d.s and programs purchased.
We spoke to a young man from Perth named Mark and discussed the Queen Mother,
who is the Colonel in chief of the Blackwatch, and of course the Matron of
our Clan Sinclair. They are now on a North American tour, if they come to
your city, don't miss this one.
I do wonder about some of the initials after the Prince of Wales officer's
names and wondered if some of you could help. they are; CAMus, BA, GDBM,
LRSM, LTCL, ALCM, and CAM.
