Tried to fix your links so the images were displayed, but the links don't seem to exist at photobucket...

My inept attempt at copying and pasting I'm afraid, seems ok now though.

Great photos, it's good to get pictures of the unveiling here.

There is a copy of this piper at Bruar in Perthshire. Is this the one you mean or is there another one in Couper? See the link below for the Perthsire one's unveiling:

A most striking figure.
What a difference to the piper "apparition" at Longueval.

Here here.
Nice to see my old friend and colleague Dr Tom Renouf MM at the unveiling. He did the Breville one as Secy 51st HD Association. A good book on the Normandy events is The Spirit of Angus by Lt Col Macgregor available from the BW Museum.
