Veteran completes charity walk wearing nuclear warfare suit
An Army veteran has completed a six-and-a-half-mile walk wearing a nuclear warfare suit to raise money for Poppyscotland.
Gordon Macmillan, 66, who has lung damage and breathing difficulties, walked from Cameron Barracks to the war memorial at Cavell Gardens in Inverness on Friday.
He enlisted a friend from the ambulance service to tail him on the route.
He said: “I’m wearing a nuclear biological warfare suit for military personnel and nothing gets into it, so if Covid tries it will not get through.”
He also wore a sign urging people to donate to Poppyscotland’s 2020 poppy appeal.
The former Gordon Highlander saluted and laid a poppy at the war memorial when he finished the walk.
