The Pipers - Over a 1000 pipers died during WWI. These extraordinary men were sitting ducks as they went over the top to pipe their men into battle. Piper Harry Lunan was the last surviving piper and he said, “I just played whatever came in to my head, but I was worried about tripping on the uneven ground, which interrupted my playing.
