Argylls in appeal for Oban old soldiers to back project

THE Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regimental Museum at Stirling Castle is appealing to old soldiers in the Oban area to share their experiences, memories and documents with the museum as part of a groundbreaking project to preserve them for posterity.

The museum and the regimental association have plans to create a unique ‘living history’ archive, in which veterans and their families and descendants who served in the regiment since the Korean War (1950-53) can capture the reality of life with the Argylls through oral and video history.

The celebrated museum is making the appeal as it prepares for a major transformation, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, in order to become ‘a new kind of museum of Scots military heritage for the 21st century’, and is looking for volunteers to support the project.
