Mrs I M Macarthur remembers that everyone had to carry an identity card during the war.

And you know the fuss there is about identity cards just now? There was our identity card and everybody had it and we'd to cart it to school every day. That was my one, when I was over in Kilravock. And everybody in the country had one o' that. But everywhere we went, those had to be carried, and if you were stopped, somebody had to stamp, that it was there. But the fuss they're making aboot identity cards, there was no fuss in the war. They were put on, forced on you and that was it. So everybody had one o' those.

This interview was recorded as part of a War Detectives project in 2005 at Cawdor Primary School.
