Piper Daniel Laidlaw V.C
Piper Laidlaw won the V.C. at Loos (World War I) on 25th September 1915: 'During the worst of the bombardment, seeing that his company was somewhat shaken from the effects of gas, he mounted the parapet, and played his company out of the trench. The effect was immediate, and the company dashed out to the assault. Piper Laidlaw continued playing until her was wounded'.

Samsun - Laz gang
Predictably the Black Sea man, or the "Laz" as he is called with a mixture of affection and sneer, has become a stock figure of the Turkish social typology. This gang is from Samsun, Turkey, on the coast of the Black Sea. Capital of Samsun Province and important Port. Former Greek colony (BC). Captured by Seljuks in 1200. A Genoese trading post - taken by Ottomans in 15th century. Important trade centre - specialising in tobacco, booming after the arrival of the railway in the late 19th century.
