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

Duncan Finlayson was interviewed at Strathpeffer Primary School about his role as a minister during World War 2. He remembers all the usual minister's jobs like baptisms, weddings and funerals continued along side working with returned soldiers who were physically or mentally wounded and dealing with the deaths of local men killed in action. He also remembers that people had a lot of questions about the rights and wrongs of war and the church's opinions, as well as soldiers wanting to discuss the meaning of life and death with him.
