    Great link Big Ned! Amazing story for a very brave and somewhat crazy piper. I love those first person accounts, very descriptive. Lord Lovet's comment at the end of the article was rather harsh. RIP indeed Piper Millin. Thanks for the link.

    Not harsh Jay, just another example of wry British humour!

    Thanks for the link Ned, another one of lifes characters gone to the recruiting grounds in the sky!
    And I agree with you about Lord Lovatt's coments being "another example of wry British humour!"

    You guys are too funny! It sounds like Millin had alot of respect for his commander, so you guys must be right. I'm still working on understanding your fine British humour. Nonetheless, it's another sad loss of a remarkable veteran.

    Take Care,
    Jay

    I was lucky enough to meet Bill on several occasions and hear him play.

    Very sad that another hero is gone.

    RIP.

    Cheers, Ade.
