Annabelle kindly sent the picture tothe Angelo Davison Memorial Pipe Band to me and here it is
The photo was apparently taken about 74 years ago and that would coincide with the information that I have - they contested at the 20th NIBA Championships under Pipe Major S McPheeters. I can find no mention of them appearing at that contest thereafter.
I am on the lookout for other photos of pipe bands  - anyone who can help I would be very grateful
I am on the look out for photos of pipe bands such as
Earl of Roden [may have become Sandy Row]
Emerald Isle
Clarke & Pentland - East Belfast area I believe
McQuiston Memorial
Wm Johnston Memorial & Immanuel - they amalgamated in the 1950's to become the Maj JM Sinclair Memorial - still going today
City of Belfast Girl Pipers
Balmoral Highland Lasses
 
There were many many more and I would like to save the photos for posterity because I dont think anyone else is

it is possible that the two men in civilian clothes are either of the 3 officers of the band you list

Any luck with the picture of the Angelo Davison Memorial Pipe Band
Would be very interested to see it
Also a recent Orange Standard had the story of who Angelo Davison was

Hi. Do you know which issue of Orange Standard? Angelo Davison was a relative of mine, I'd really like to read the article.

Many thanks

I think it was around the time of my post
Try Schomberg House the Orange HQ at top of Cregagh Road - they are usually quite helpful

That Nathaniel Ash(e) in the the photograph must have been some kind of cousin/uncle of mine.
Amazing.
