Welcome to our Web
This website is dedicated
those pipers of the WW2 Canadian armed forces who brought the Great
Highland Bagpipes to the Netherlands during the liberation and
afterwards, as they were waiting for repatriation in this country after
the end of the Second World War.
From then on, for the liberated people
of the Netherlands,
would stand for Peace and Freedom !
1943, Italy: Cape
Breton Highlanders are piped ashore by their own regimental Pipe Band.
May 13, 1945: Liberation, the CBH Pipe Band parades in Leeuwarden,
I will now quote from an
article I wrote on this subject in the nineties for the "Piping Times"
of the College of Piping of Glasgow, Scotland.
