Old Photograph Pipe Band Barry Camp Scotland

Old photograph of a Pipe Band and soldiers returning to Barry Camp, by Carnoustie, Scotland. There are Ministry of Defence owned rifle ranges and a large training area on the nearby Dunes, adjacent to Carnoustie Golf Links. The history of its present function dates back to the mid-19th century when the area was used for at least 30 years by the Forfarshire Rifle Volunteers, the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry the Panmure Battery of the Forfarshire Artillery Brigade, and a Royal Naval Reserve Battery. In 1897 the land was sold by Lord Panmure to the War Office for use as a military training area, for which it has been used ever since.
