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

Katy Mackenzie, Isobel Mackenzie, Marion Fleming and Margaret Beaton all speak about their lives on the farms and crofts during World War 2. They speak about the various types of work that needed done and the jobs that they helped with as children. There was no electricity, tv or telephones but they didn't experience the same shortages as those in the big cities did. Rabbit stew was a popular dish as there was a trapper employed by the MOD to keep rabbits off the airfields.
