On 18th October in Kernow many were shocked to be informed of the untimely passing of Tony Piper.
'Pipes' as he was known to so many, was an 'Old Hill Boy' from Falmouth, Cornwall.
Pipes served as a police officer and he was always an outstanding Cornish patriot.
Following his retirement he campaigned ceaselessly for Cornwall both politically and culturally.
A Bard of Gorsedh Kernow and always to be seen at the front of processions with a huge banner Piran with a smile as big as the flag!
His love of Kernow and the other Celtic Nations was undoubted. He was a member of many Celtic organisations and a founder member of 'Cornish Solidarity' and was known far and wide. He worked tirelessly for pan Celtic cooperation.
Tony was a true Cornishman and a Celtic legend.
