Ronald McIsaac – Rest in Peace

We are all reeling from the devastating news that one of our Band Assistants, Ronald McIsaac has passed away.

Ronald was from Corstorphine, Edinburgh and would have been celebrating his 60th Birthday in May.


Ronald was well known in the Indy Family.He was a member of the Freedom Convoy and the Society of William Wallace.


He loved travelling all over his beloved Scotland and meeting like minded folk.






When Ronald sadly lost his wife and soul mate Denise in early 2019 he needed something to fill the dark void in his life. A friend of his introduced him to the band family, and he was very soon making himself useful!

He was with us on our very first public outing – Stornaway. He drove the van that carried all our instruments, uniforms etc.






The tributes have been pouring in on social media, and all have the same common threads. People remember how passionate Ronald was about Scotland and Independence, but what shines through is how well loved he was. He was kind. He was generous. Above all people are remembering that they always laughed with Ronald – he was funny.
We are deeply sorry we will not be able to attend his funeral due to the Covid – 19 restrictions but I’m sure we’ll find a way to honour his memory once life returns to normal.
Scotland has lost a true patriot and freedom fighter and is a poorer place for it.
Rest in Peace Ronald – your memory will march on in our hearts
