21 Dec 2005 00:00

A piper who played the bagpipes as the troops went ashore during the D-Day Landings has been honoured in song. Scot Bill Millin, who is now 82, has lived in Dawlish, Devon, for 40 years. Inspired by his musical past, north Devon folk singer Sheelagh Allen has written a tune for him called The Highland Piper. Mr Millin was nicknamed the Mad Piper for going ashore piping the Highland Laddie under the instruction of the eccentric Lord Lovat.
