Kintyre youngsters commemorate the battle of Arras

EXACTLY 100 years since the battle of Arras started in 1917, two Campbel town teenagers will join a commemoration in the French town.

S3 history students Ruairidh Wallace and Abdullah Abdul Kareem, both 14, start their once-in-a-lifetime trip today with 72 other pupils, representing every Scottish education authority, to remember the 18,000 Scots who fell in the battle, which began on April 9.

Organised by WW100 Scotland, the young Scots will be joined by a matching number of French and Canadian students, at a memorial service, in the Faubourg d’Amiens Commonwealth war graves cemetery in Arras.
