source? ok wikipoodia says "nicknamed Fighting Jack Churchill and Mad Jack, was a British soldier who fought throughout the Second World War armed with a longbow, and a Scottish broadsword"

A Claymore is a Broadsword, and Wiki also says "Churchill leapt forward from his position playing "March of the Cameron Men" on his bagpipes"

Theres a bit of proof (depending on how good of a source you find Wikipedia) and there are other accounts of pipers at normandy

a claymore and scottish broadsword are very different... a claymore is in the drawing above.. a scottish broadsword is a short sword with a basket hilt

Again from Wikipedia (judge the source as you will)

"The term "claymore" is sometimes also applied to the Scottish broadsword of the 17th and 18th centuries."

Those asking, i'm pretty sure this is talking about Jack churchill.

For those who don't know about him, I have a post with some more detail, but the basic cool stuff is:
British commando in WW2
Only man to kill someone in WW2 with a Longbow
Escaped from a concentration camp and walked a few hundred miles to escape
Captured, then freed from another camp
Trained the Aus Army
Brought surfing back to the UK

Bitch please. This inglorious ************ was Bill Millin, otherwise known as Piper Bill.

Here's a little snippit from the wiki:

Millin is best remembered for playing the pipes whilst under fire during the D-Day landing in Normandy.[4] Pipers had traditionally been used in battle by Scottish and Irish soldiers.[5] However, the use of bagpipes was restricted to rear areas by the time of the Second World War by the British Army. Lovat, nevertheless, ignored these orders and ordered Millin, then aged 21, to play. When Private Millin demurred, citing the regulations, he recalled later, Lord Lovat replied: "Ah, but that’s the English War Office. You and I are both Scottish, and that doesn’t apply." He played "Hielan' Laddie" and "The Road to the Isles" as his comrades fell around him on Sword Beach.[1] Millin states that he later talked to captured German snipers who claimed they did not shoot at him because they thought he was crazy.

You're right, Jack was at Norway and Dunkirk, not Normandy.

Thats pretty coincidental though, 2 crazy guys playing Bagpipes on D-Day, both of whom were captured (although Jack was captured later in the war)

Reading up about Piper Bill, eh was a pretty cool guy

Anon here. I forgot to mention, he was the personal piper for Simon Fraser, 15th Lord Lovat, commander of 1 Special Service Brigade.

Or, you know, they were shooting the guys holding a gun first.   
   
Since those guys can shoot back and someone playing the ******* bagpipes can't.
