Wooden case with metal clasps built to hold and transport one set of Highland Bag Pipes.
The Henderson Bag Pipe Case was donated to St. Andrew’s College by Mr. & Mrs. Robert Henderson in memory of their son James Irwin Henderson, SAC 1921-1926. James was a Sergeant Wireless Operator – Air Gunner, RCAF who was killed in action over Malta in November 1941 (WWII).
