Retired master Bombadier ready to tackle Nijmegen


CFB Halifax

When Master Bombadier (Ret) Jeremy Blackburn’s boots hit the ground this July at the International Four Days Marches Nijmegen, it will be his 20th time participating in the gruelling test of endurance.

And while the 160 km march is a daunting task on its own, MBR Blackburn has always brought his pipes along, putting I the extra effort of playing music to boost morale of fellow marchers. There are stories of him piping nonstop for the entirety of the march in his earlier years.
