The Heroes of St Valery – 80th Anniversary

At 10:00am on the 12th June 2020, pipers up and down Scotland will take to their doorsteps to play the haunting pipers march, Heroes of Valery, in tribute to those who fought and fell at “the forgotten Dunkirk”.

This will be the first ever national commemoration event for this important Battle, and we hope to see thousands of pipers and other musicians take to their doorsteps for a moving tribute.  The event is being organised by leading Scottish Armed Forces charities RCET: Scotland’s Armed Forces Children’s Charity, Poppyscotland and Legion Scotland.
