Unit: 48th Highlanders Pipe Band
Allan Cameron enlisted in the summer of 1942 for the Canadian Forces. He entered basic training in 1943, and was so talented with the bagpipes he was sent off to Italy as a replacement for the 48th Highlanders Pipe Band. He served until the end of the war, and remembered how moving it was to play in front of the Vimy Ridge Monument. He arrived safely back home in October of 1945.
