This hardcore Scot is Tommy Macpherson aka the “Kilted Killer” Served as an officer in the No.11 Scottish Commandoes in WW2. In 1941, during a daring four man raid to capture Erwin Rommel in North Africa, he was captured by the enemy. In a span of 2 years, he escaped a total of 7 times till finally making it back to the UK. Days after his return, he was ordered by Winston Churchill himself to “Set Europe ablaze” He parachuted behind enemy in lines in France and began a long campaign of destruction alongside the French resistance. Virtually every single night, he would either kill Germans or destroy their supplies and communications. On one occasion when a German staff car was approaching a level crossing Macpherson booby-trapped the barrier arm so it crashed down on the vehicle, decapitating the local commandant and his driver He single handedly captured 23,000 men and 1,000 vehicles in one night by simply convincing a German General that he was in command of the Allied forces in the area. As a touch of class, he would ride around the enemy country side in a black French car with a British flag attached to it. The Germans placed a 300,000 franc bounty on his head He then went to Italy and pretty much did all of the above again. Wounded numerous times and awarded the Military Cross for his actions. One of the most decorated soldier in history He recently passed away at the age of 94 (Nov.6.2014) Side note: He did all of the above wearing the full Highlander battledress..including the kilt.
Following the Great War there was considerable discussion about the reconstruction of Ypres. Some, such as Winston Churchill, wanted the ruins of the city to remain as a symbolic 'Zone of Silence' to remember all those who passed through the city onto their deaths on the Ypres Salient.
However, locals were beginning to return to the city and other Belgian people came looking for work clearing fields of military debris and rebuilding destroyed structures. Reconstruction went ahead and took place throughout much of the 1920s. A permanent commemoration took the form of the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing which was completed in 1927. ...
