The old soldier in the wheelchair wearing a kilt, is piper Bill Millin who was known as the ‘Mad Piper’ because of his antics during the Normandy D-Day landings.
He is seen here raising the Union Flag during the Armed Forces Day celebrations on the ‘lawn’, Dawlish, Devon.

Taken with a Pentax K110D with kit lens.
Hope you like it and thank you for looking.
