Piper James Cleland Richardson was killed at the Somme in 1916 and awarded the Victoria Cross for bravery. His pipes were later found in the mud, taken to Scotland in 1917 and identified in 2003. After much effort by various individuals and organizations, they are now on display at the British Columbia legislature (Greg Dickson photo). The statue and plaque are in front of the museum in his Chilliwack hometown.
