Commando Memorial Presentation

Today (6 March 2000), Mr James Muirhead, from Portpatrick, presented a framed photograph of The Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge, near Fort William, (taken by Peter Muirhead, his son) to the Portpatrick Primary School. The memorial was modelled by Sergeant Jack Waddington (front), 'Taffy' Mole (left) and Mr James Muirhead (right). Only Mr. Muirhead survives - all were members of No 4 Commando. the memorial

The presentation was made at the School assembly, where the head teacher, Mr Tyson, introduced Mr Muirhead and guests Lord Lt. Major Orr-Ewing, Mr Brian Park and Mr Billy Mitchell. The pupils sang songs for the visitors, who were all impressed by their enthusiasm, good behaviour and smart appearance in school uniforms.

The Small Towns Initiative is to provide a supply of leaflets concerning the monument and Mr Muirhead's involvement to the School for use by pupils and visitors to the area.
