These interviews were conducted by school pupils as part of a 'Their Past Your Future' project.

Marion Fleming, Margaret Beaton, Katy Mackenzie, Isobel Mackenzie and Iain Macleod talk about their childhoods during World War 2. They speak about drawing ships being fired on by aircraft because that was what they were hearing about all the time. They also speak about the blackout and being careful with torches when out at night. In Inver it wasn't possible to black out the chimneys and people reported that it was like flying over a furnace with the orange glow. Other topics include gas masks, sweet rationing and clothing coupons. Iain Macleod and his sisters put on a concert in the bike sheds to raise money for the Red Cross and made £6 6s.
