David Murray is a piper of skill and repute and is recognised as a leading authority on pipe music. He was commissioned into the Cameron Highlanders in 1941, after wartime service with the Royal Scots and the Black Watch. The third generation of his family to serve in the Camerons, he fought with the 1st battalion – the old 79th – in the ‘great, bitter battle’ of Kohima in 1944 and the subsequent advance in Burma. After the war, he served with the Royal Malay Regiment during the Malayan Emergency and commanded the last-surviving battalion of the Cameron Highlanders.
After leaving the Army, he commanded the training regiment of Abi Dhabi Defence Force and, later, was the Deputy Producer of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, as well as being prominent in piping circles in Scotland and overseas.
David Murray is married with a son, two daughters and three grown-up grandsons. He lives in the Lammermuir Hills in the Scottish Borders.
