Two hundred boys from Aberlour Orphanage went to WWI. Letters written to the only home they knew are woven into a compelling narrative about the extraordinary extended family created by the orphanage.
Most soldiers in the First World War wrote letters home. But what if you had no family? More than 200 Old Boys from the Aberlour Orphanage joined the war; more than 60 of them were killed. The forgotten voices in the letters they wrote, to the only home many had ever known, are woven into a compelling narrative about the extraordinary extended family created by the orphanage.
‘One of the most profound evocations of a community coming to terms with the horrors of those years … a masterpiece’ (Northern Scot).
