International Piper

The International Piper was founded in 1978 by the late Captain John A. MacLellan MBE (1921-1991) and his wife, Christine. They were the magazine’s joint editors. The magazine ran until 1981 and was popular from its first publication, containing as it did news, well written, informative and opinionated articles, humour and comment. It was never really seen as a rival publication to the Piping Times and whereas the Piping Times was always A5 in size, the International Piper was produced to a larger format, though not quite A4.
