Photograph of John Allan and Iain Munro in uniform

This is a photograph of John Allan and Iain Munro in the uniform of the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders. Iain's widow and daughter were interviewed by pupils of Portree Primary School as part of a War Detective project in 2005.

The two brothers belonged to Portree and served with the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders in World War 2. John Allan (left) joined up against his parents' wishes when barely seventeen years of age and was killed at St Valery four months before his eighteenth birthday. Iain was taken prisoner in Northern France and sent to Germany where he spent almost five years in a prisoner-of-war camp
