'S e Ùisdean Friseal, às Inbhir Nis, fear de na saighdearan a bha ann an ar-a-mach Salerno san t-Sultain 1943, nuair a dhiùlt 192 fir òrdain a ghabhail aig àm ionnsaigh nan Co-fheachdan air an Eadailt a deas. Chaidh na ceannaircich a sgaradh roimhe bho na h-aonadan aca ann an Afraga a Tuath. Ged a chaidh innse dhaibh gum biodh iad a' tilleadh chun nan aonadan aca fhèin ann an Salerno, fhuair iad a-mach gun robh iad air an cur ann am buidhnean còmhla ri na feachdan Ameireaganach a bha a' sabaid airson a' bhaile. Dhiùlt iad cumail ri na h-òrdain, ag ràdh gun deach breugan innse dhaibh, ach às dèidh siud chaidh an cur gu deuchainn-cùirte agus fhuaradh iad ciontach. An toiseach chaidh triùir shàirdseantan a chur fo bhinn bàis - air ìsleachadh a-rithist gu prìosan fad dà bhliadhn' deug. Fhuair na corpailearan binn de dheich bliadhna agus an fheadhainn eile, seachd bliadhna an duine. Ach às dèidh siud chaidh dàil a chur air a h-uile binn, fhad 's nach biodh mì-mhodh sam bith tuilleadh ann. Ach cha deach mathanas oifigeil a thoirt seachad a-riamh.

Sa phìos chlaistinneach seo, air a chlàradh an toiseach sna 1990an airson 'Moray Firth People', tha Ùisdean a' bruidhinn air mar dh'èirich dha san ar-a-mach.

Interviewer: How did events unfold then after the prison camp.

Well, we were taken from that prisoner of war cage across the sea again. We were put aboard, I think it was an LST or an LC something or other, can't remember, we were taken back to the mainland again. And then we arrived back somewhere in North Africa. We were put into the cattle trucks on a train, you know, just like a bunch of cattle. Food was very, very sparse at that time again and we were still under guard, of course, until eventually we arrived at, I think it was Constantine, and then we were placed in another camp, again behind - I think it was behind barbed wire.

Interviewer: Did you ever contemplate what the official reaction might have been to that escapade? Did it ever go through your mind at the time thinking, 'Oh, I wonder how they're going to react to this?'

I felt quite confident that somebody would see the light and realise that what we were doing was purely and simply a matter of principle. Like the rest of them we had our, we had our principles and belief in the truth. We were truthful ourselves and we believed that other persons would be telling us the truth. So I was quite confident, initially, until the court martial took place, that people would see the light and realise that what we had done was in good faith and I didn't think that things would have turned out as they did
