Bill Millin, 86, of Dawlish in Devon,

braved enemy fire to pipe Allied troops ashore at Sword Beach during the Normandy landings in 1944. He was unarmed and German soldiers did not shoot him because they thought that he was mad.
The French of the area are putting up a statue to honor the man.

Yes, I know, bagpipe jokes commence in 3, 2,
