“I SWEAR”, recorded by #1 Country artist Tim Buppert, tells the story of how two soldiers made a pact that whoever outlived the other would wear a dress at his friend’s funeral. Tragically, the death in Afghanistan of Kevin Elliott while on patrol resulted in the pact being kept at his funeral in Dundee, which was accorded full military honours by his battalion, The Black Watch.
