'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.

'John Mitchell, deceased, he defended the Camerons. We had quite a number of officers defending us. Some of them were legal men. Most of them were, I think - others weren't. But they put up a fair enough case as far as I remember.

Interviewer: Now, did Captain Mitchell come and interview you?

He probably would have done. Again, I can't remember. But things went - seemed to go very, very quickly then, once the court martial was set in force. We were taken from day to day to the area in which the court martial was held. We sat there with a - we were all numbered. We had a thing hang around our necks like cattle again. Each of us had our number and as to the proceedings I can't remember, I can't remember it very much, until it was all finished.

Interviewer: Now, at the court martial proceedings Hugh, did they take the whole body of 192 men actually into the court?

Oh, we were altogether. We were marched from the camp to the court martial centre. At the end of proceedings we were marched back again. The following day we were marched altogether. It was - we were altogether the whole time.

Interviewer: Now I understand that you were under the escort of Welsh Guardsmen who were -

That's correct, aye.

Interviewer: - very impressed with your turnout?

Aye, uh-huh. That's correct, aye. I think we were much smarter than them. We kept the ca- the enclosure in which we were kept, it must have been one of the smartest in the, in the area, and we ourselves we kept ourselves exceptionally smart. We were determined that we were going to be the best dressed and the best behaved soldiers in the entire area'
