This interview was recorded by Dornoch Historylinks Museum in November 2005. As part of a 'Their Past Your Future' programme, pupils from Dornoch Primary School interviewed local residents about their memories of World War 2. In this extract Lorna Currie remembers an accident involving some Polish soldiers during World War 2.

Well, I remember the sadness when some Polish soldiers had a dreadful accident coming back from a dance they'd been to at Golspie, I think, in a truck. And the truck went off the road at the cemetery up Poles Road and that wasn't very far from our house. And that was dreadful. I think three Polish soldiers were killed at that time.

I think they're buried in the cemetery, aren't they?

Yes, they are.
