Wings Over Wick

(First Published by Hillhead School in 1989 as a fundraiser for the school)
It also contains The Hill Avenue Bombing and Other Wartime Memories - coming later to Caithness.org

This booklet is made from interviews which Primary 7 pupils of Hillhead Primary School in Wick had with grandparents neighbours and contacts through the school.

No special appeal outside the school was made to find them.  They are a sample of ordinary people who lived in Wick during the last war and remember their experiences.

We would like to thank all the people below who helped us to make this book.  Without their help it would not have been possible.

Not only did they answer our questions but they also let us record their answers on tape.   A special thanks to Mr Cameron who spoke to the whole class about his wartime experiences. Many thanks to all these people'
