The Lone Piper
by Ian Moran
On June 6, 1944, Brigadier Lovat led the British Commandos ashore at Sword beach on the coast of Normandy. Accompanying him, was his Personal Piper, Private Bill Millin. Without a rifle, carrying only his bagpipes, Bill marched into war wearing his father's World War I kilt. Read the story as told through the eyes of the commandos and paratroopers who witnessed their legendary bravery.
