12 Jul 2013 | Basel Tattoo
After three international trips within a fifteen-month period, the band took a much-needed break before returning to Basel in 2013. The 8th edition tattoo was the biggest to date with over 200 musicians making up the Massed Pipes and Drums again under the direction of Captain Stuart Samson. Stuart had always been so close to the VPD Pipe Band that he felt like a part of our family. Near the close of the Tattoo, we made him family by inducting him as the 15th honorary member of the band.
