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.

'LEST WE FORGET'. Rest In Eternal Peace Sir.

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.

Gordon Stewart is turning 100 today.

Born on 8 December 1918, Gordon enlisted on 30 January 1943 and served with the Royal Canadian Air Force as a Flight Instructor.

Posted to No. 2 Flying Instructor School, he attained the rank of Flying Officer and spent the Second World War training fighter pilots, as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.

Gordon says the best thing about his service was the flying and training pilots to “fly blind”, that is, using instruments only.

His advice to younger Australian Defence Force members is to “always keep your eyes open and to be honest with yourself”.

And his secret to a long life? “What you eat and drink, and an occasional scotch!”

Happy birthday Gordon, and thank you for your service.
