It has been an honour and a privilege from start to finish. When Scottish island mum first muted the idea of creating memorial pieces to mark 100 years since the beginning of World War 1 she couldn’t have known….
She couldn’t have known how dedicated and committed people would be to the project and this is, perhaps, how it should be.
I think all of us involved realised that this was our chance to create something unique and special to remember all that had lost so much. Memorial Day is about all service men and woman and their devoted families and this year is just as important as all years. So, all that is left to say is a huge thank you to everyone who has shared this journey with Scottish island mum. It has been both humbling and inspirational.

I end with a fitting and unique tribute to all who have lost so much in combat through the years but we have a special place in our hearts for those young men who lost their lives in the horror that was World War 1.
