Just over two weeks ago People’s Ford Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band won the World Pipe Band Championships for the first time in their 52 year history. This morning we take a look back at the photos of the wild, emotional celebrations which were fun to photograph. One couldn’t help be moved by the intense passion and release of energy as the band members jumped and hugged and sang and shed a few tears.
