Judges' Comments:

'A forensically detailed record of a tragedy that continues to haunt Lewis and the Western Isles. Immensely moving, this beautifully produced, marvellously illustrated book will be a lasting memorial to those soldiers returning from the War who lost their lives when the Iolaire sank within sight of their homeland on 1 January 1919.'
