Portree Primary School Project

Walking towards the port in Portree on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, I passed this memorial to soldiers from the area who had died during the First World War and the Second World War. The inscription
MAIRIDH AN CLIU GU BRATH (May their fame live on forever) was written on the pedestal

Lest We Forget

Portree Primary School
War Time Memories Project
Donated to thank the Community
In memory of all 
who sacrificed so much during
The Great Wars

A search on the Internet shows that Portree Primary School has undertaken a number of War Time Memories projects over the years including producing a book and a CD relating the war time experiences of the ordinary people of Skye from photographs and personal reminiscences. A number of such programs appear to have been undertaken at different times.
