Piper George Findlater, Gordon Highlanders. Awarded the Victoria Cross for his gallantry at the storming of the Dargal Heights on the North West frontier of India in 1897. Findlater was decorated for continuing to play his pipes after he had been wounded and propped himself up and while exposed to  enemy fire continued to play ‘The Haughs o’ Cromdale’... "I thought that the charge would be better led by a quick strathspey, but I was bleeding profusely and in a few minutes sickened."
