RIP - Drum Major Bernie de Bernier

I dont know that many people will have heard of Drum Major de Bernier (image below) but here in SA he was something of a legend and I was deeply sadned to hear of his death a couple of weeks ago. He was for many years the Drum Major of the Transvaal Scottish Regiment and even after he retired from active participation in the band he remained deeply involved in both the regiment and the band, he also judged Drum Major events and Drill Dress and Discipline at gatherings throughout SA.

His funeral was the day before the Jocks left for Moscow to take part in a military Tatoo but I hope they managed to get there to play their regimental march the Atholl Highlanders as Bernie marched of the field one last time.

RIP Drum Major
