Physical description

Black and white photograph of 11 girl pipers in full costume standing in formation in front of a plane, slightly right of center. Four of the pipers are partly obscures by standing behind the piper in front. They are posed as if playing their bag pipes. The group includes a drum major on the far right and pipe major on the far left. There is also a gentleman in full Scottish costume on the far left. This could be Mr. Cameron. The pipers and the plane take up most of the frame, and very little landscape in the background can be seen.
