The Iolaire (The Eagle) sank tragically in sight of the coast of Lewis in 1918 when packed with those ex-servicemen who had survived the First World War (Eight hundred had died). Their loved ones who were waiting in happy anticipation on the Stornoway pier had their high hopes cruelly dashed. Of the two hundred and seventy three men on board only sixty-three survived.

This film was written and animated by John Hudson when he was an animation student at the James Watt College in Greenock. He used the interesting technique of a white line on black
