'Voices From Their Past - Messages For Your Future' a chlàradh ann an 2005. Tha Màiri is Dòmhnall MacCoinnich gan ceasnachadh le cloinn o Bhunsgoil Ulapul.

Neach-ceasnachaidh: Did you get any injuries?

Dòmhnall: No, ma dear. I didn't have injuries. I didn't, no. I didn't get any, and I was immune to malaria - I was a carrier of it - but I wouldn't, it wouldn't show on myself. But I could - if a mosquito bit me and then bit, bites you, it would pass the germ on to you, like, but it never showed on me. I was a carrier, but it never showed on me. The nearest the Japanese got to wounding me was a bullet went straight through my hat! [Laughter]. Yeh. We were ambushed in the middle of a river - the Salween River it's called, in Burma - and we were ambushed in the middle of it, and I couldn't swim, I still can't swim, but I got across the river by hanging onto the mule's tail, and was scrambling up the embankment on the other side when we were snipe - the snipers got us - you know? And this bullets was flying everywhere and one bullet went right through my hat! [Laughter]. I took the bullet - the hat home with me but I don't know what happened to it after that.

Neach-ceasnachaidh: Did you have a cloth hat or a hard hat?

Dòmhnall: Eh, d'you know what a cowboy hat looks like? I'll show you - I think I've got a photo here. That's the hat we wore. That's [?]

Neach-ceasnachaidh: Oh, right.

Dòmhnall. We weren't allowed to carry steel helmets because of the extra weight it was putting on us. Our total weight to carry was half a hundredweight. We had to carry that on our backs all the time. That was mostly ammunition; grenades, and our belts here, with grenades on them as well. The maximum, the maximum we could carry in our rucksacks was just, just over the half hundredweight. Now, a half hundredweight means nothing to you, does it? You don't know what a half hundredweight is.
