    In connection with Pegasus Bridge, the Burton Bridge Brewery made Pegasus Piper A.B.V. 4.5%.
    The hops in this beer are English Minstrel & French Bouclier.

    Bill Millin. born July 1922. As personal piper to 15th Lord Lovatt he piped his fellow commandos onto Sword Beach at the D-Day Landings, as many of them fell around him.

    Later that same day he piped the remainder across the heavily defended Pegasus Bridge, where more of them were to fall.

    Afterwards, some captured German snipers told him that he had only been spared the same fate as his comrades because they thought he had gone mad.

    Appropriately, after the war, Bill worked as a Psychiatric Nurse in Glasgow.

    Nieuport 17 beer. This was brewed by the Fulstow Brewery at Louth in Lincolnshire. I am not sure that this particular beer is still in production.
