Entry in the 2015 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt by Gwenda Ireland.

The march from Christchurch to Ashburton, a distance of about 89 kms, was a fund-raiser for the band who got as far as Norwood just north of the Selwyn River having marched in full uniform with their bagpipes for about 40 kms.

The booklet gives information not only about the march, but also about the history of the band, and pipe bands and their traditions in general.
