The Grade 2 400 RCAF Squadron Pipes & Drums have made a change at the leading-drummer spot, with Mark Passmore taking over from Dan Bist who had led the section for the past three years.

Passmore previously has been a member of the Grade 1 Peel Regional Police and 78th Fraser Highlanders, and was Leading-Drummer of the Grade 2 Glengarry Pipe Band and is currently a full-time drumming instructor with the Canadian Forces.

According to a statement from 400 Squadron, Bist will reportedly “take a break from competitive bands for the near future.”

Mark will be a key ingredient in our way forward
