WW100 Islay- Remembering the Tragedies of WW1

On may the 4th Islay came together to remember all the people that died in WW1 in the sinking of the Tuscania and the Otranto and to save us and make life better for the future people. Everyone went to the pier by the Islay hotel in Port Ellen and there was lots of solders with guns, there were bands too. Later on Princess Anne came in a black car with a lot of security. I didn’t really see Princess Anne I just saw her get out the car then walk towards the memorial. All the schools on Islay got together to hold the flags of the states of America, which had been made by the Islay Quilters and lots of people in the community as well as the schools; Port Ellen P67 made Michegan. We stood on a sidewalk and held out our flags. We were greeted by MP’s and navy officers and we also got to meet the American ambassador and his wife. I think that it was a fun day and it was an honer to be there because we were representing all the different states America by holding the flags which we had made.
