Having read that, I can only conclude that Lord Lovat was secretly sleeping with Millin's wife and was trying to get him killed.

Tr0mBoNe: Unarmed.

Except for the weapon of war under his left arm.


And His Sigan Dubh  no true scotsman goes anywhere without that.

 And yet he must have unleashed holy terror on those poor Germans.

Imagine the scene:

They are peering out of thier pillboxes seeing the greatest flotilla ever assembled in the history of the world bearing down on them   Machine Guns are chattering, rockets are firing bug guns are thumping  and then they hear a pipe tune wafting over the din and think "Vas in Gott's name are they DOING to that poor poor cat?"

took the fight right out of them, i bet

HMS_Blinkin: Plus, you'd figure the German defenders would be more concerned with firing at the guys shooting at  them.  Unarmed piper guy was obviously not a threat, so why waste ammo and attention on him when you've got more pressing concerns?


Not a threat? He was making them listen to the bagpipes.

cgraves67: iheartscotch: I imagine the Germans thought he was crazy, and didn't shoot him.

The article states that German POWs said precisely that.


Playing the bagpipes around a bunch of people with high powered weapons?  You'd have to be farking daft.

Let me understand this concept of war you people have on this planet.

You go to battle and only shoot to kill those who are deemed to be sane?

It's a good tactic, most people would rather face their death then stand around listening to the bagpipes.
