from Letter from Capt. Neil Weir to Mrs Edith Weir, 20 June 1916, page 61:

My Dear Mother, Just a note to say I am quite well - hoping you are the same. All our regiments sent their pipes and drums last night and had a combined band which caused much excitement amongst the villagers. I think our Band is quite the best.
