Look­ing back at war sto­ries

Ayrshire Post - - Fishy Story -

The rather poignant sub­ject of what Great War sol­diers com­mu­ni­cated to fam­i­lies back home - and what keep­sakes those fam­i­lies trea­sured - was ex­plored at Troon Li­brary.

Se­nior pupils from Troon Pri­mary delved into the topic and saw the ‘ Next of Kin Kit.’

The li­brary ser­vice’s An­nette Simp­son said: “The kit is meant to be touched and han­dled and the chil­dren en­joyed a per­sonal touch in what the items meant to Thomas Scott from the Tam O Shanter Inn in Ayr and James Cooper who did ba­sic train­ing in the town.”
