BPA AG IARRAIDH AIR AN MoD INBHE IONAD GLÈIDHTE MARA A THOIRT AIR LÀRACH HMY IOLAIRE

Chaidh an HMY Iolaire fodha air madainn na Bliadhn’ Ùire 1919 an dèidh dhì a dhol air na creagan dà mhìle bho Chala Steòrnabhaigh far an robh teaghlaichean a’ feitheamh gus fàilte a chuir air na ceudan a bha a’ tilleadh dhachaigh bhon Chogadh Mhòr.
