Punters will be supporting the work of the Royal British Legion every time they raise a pint of a beer specially brewed to remember D Day.

Today is the 70th anniversary of the Normandy Landings, a major Allied Forces operation during World War II.

Every year the Old Colonial in Mirfield commissions a beer – and this year is now exception.

Landlord Tim Wood took delivery of three barrels of Millin About this week from Bosuns Brewery.

He said: “It’s named after Piper Bill Millin, who was Lord Lovat’s piper. He piped the company onto the shore and piped the commandos across Pegagus Bridge. The German soldiers never shot at him because they thought it was bad luck to shoot a piper.”

A percentage of every sale of Millin About will go to the Royal British Legion.
