'S e baile beag air costa sear Chataibh a th' ann am Bun Ilidh. Aig àm an Dàrna Cogaidh thog an R.A.F. stèisean rèideir aig Crachdaig, ann am parraiste Loth, beagan mhìltean an iar dheas air Bun Ilidh; bha stèisean rèideir eile aig Neimheadal, mu mhìle an ear thuath air Bun Ilidh. San earrainn chlaisnich seo, tha neach-còmhnaidh à Bun Ilidh a' cuimhneachadh air rud a thachair ann an talla spòrs na sgoile aig àm a' chogaidh.

'I was in a class of five; there was three girls and two boys. First period in the morning was Latin and we had it in the gymnasium which was the big, big place. We only had the table beside the fire, and the five of us around the table, plus the teacher who used to come in the last minutes. We got in this morning; right at the bottom of the gymnasium was this great big box with sand in it. The army officers apparently had been in the night before and they'd made out this plan of the ridge, all in detail, all to scale, and it was sitting in the sand. So we were all very interested, standing round about having a look into it. And this other lad in the class, he got behind one of the girls and gave her a push and she landed smack bang in the middle of the lot and scattered the lot. About a few minutes later, another of the Home Guard officers, he came in. And when he saw just five of us in this great big gymnasium he said, 'Aw, is this a punishment?' And the other boy said, 'No, but it soon will be.' [Laughter] So then the headmaster, he arrived in and saw this mess in the bottom of the gymnasium. And needless to say, the two boys - the girls weren't called in question - but the two boys were. So we got, we both got thumped for it. And they must have spent hours doing this the night before'
