The pipe of D-Day remains silent

Recommended Posts

Another old addict of our Normandy beaches in June is gone. They will be fewer and fewer, and they will be badly missed during ceremonies becoming tasteless without them.


I remember this sequence in The Longest Day, when the brave piper on Sword Beach is only interrupted by surprise, seeing a weird individual approaching on bicycle, the mayor of Colleville, where Lovat's battalion had landed. His music is also criticized by two Irish soldiers (including young Sean Connery, criticizing Jocks!)


Scotland for ever ! :salute:
