Millin was hailed a hero by British troops after playing a non-stop rendition of ‘Highland Laddie’ as battle raged around him and Wright hopes his players can show a similar attitude on a rugby pitch.
“As a coaching group, we feel it will be really instructive to show these young men the sacrifices made by people of their age in years gone by,” said Wright.
“We wouldn’t be going to France to play rugby if it wasn’t for the bravery they displayed, and it’s only right and proper that we go there to remember them.
“I hope the players find the experience inspirational.”
Wright’s troops head to France hoping to improve on last year’s draw against Les Bleus in Inverness and a disappointing haul of three points and will be led into battle by tighthead George Hunter.
Hunter is joined in the front row by Edinburgh’s Robin Hislop and Melrose hooker Richard Ferguson while the back row consists of No.8 Grant Runciman, Leicester’s Hamish Watson and Bath’s James Tyas.
Behind the scrum, Wright can call upon a promising mix of pace, intelligence and invention. Stuart Hogg, the talented Glasgow Warriors and Hawick full-back gets his chance, with Mike Doneghan and Kerr Gossman completing an enviable back three.
Mark Bennett, the highly-rated Ayr midfielder, will form a centre partnership with Harry Leonard of Boroughmuir, while Craig Jackson (Melrose) and Jamie Stevenson (Westcombe Park) team up at half-back.
