You will find below videos and pictures of me playing the
 Great Highland Bagpipe at various places around the world.

[August 12, 2012]
The videos and pictures below were taken on the stretch of
Omaha Beach directly below the Normandy American
Cemetery and Memorial at Colleville-sur-Mer
Playing a tune that I composed several years ago to honor all the members
of the United States Armed Forces who died in defense of our freedom. The
tune is entitled: "So That Others May Live"

Playing the tune "Auld Lang Syne". For some unknown reason I always think of 
the heroes who landed in Normandy on June 6, 1944 while listening to this song/tune.

Walking on the beach and looking at the horizon,
I caught my mind wandering;
Wandering about what happened here so long ago.
They were young men too,
Who came on a cloudy day and never saw the sun again.
They are now resting in a peaceful place, a garden of stones,
Overlooking the beach that saw them coming.
Each stone is like a tree which has never been allowed to grow.
Who could ever forget?
Who could ever forget what they did?
                                                                                                                        I wrote this poem about the heroes who landed
                                                                                                                        on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944 in the early 1990s.

The Pipers Memorial at Longueval honors all the pipers who fell in the First World War.
The monument was sculpted by Andy De Comyn and was inaugurated on 20th July 2002.
It shows a piper in full battle dress, kilt and tin helmet climbing up and over the
parapet of a trench and encouraging the men on with the sound of his pipes.
On the adjacent walls are the crests of the regiments that lost pipers during
the 1914-1918 War.

all the Gordon Highlanders pipers who lost their lives during the First World War.

Playing the tune "On the Road to Passchendaele" at the Scottish Memorial near Zonnebeke, Belgium.
The memorial commemorates all Scots who fought in the First World War. One of the inscriptions on
the monument reads: "In remembrance of all people of Scottish origin who fought in the Great War 1914-18."
