A SCOTS teenager yes­ter­day per­formed his own poem at Buck­ing­ham Palace as part of com­mem­o­ra­tions mark­ing the cen­te­nary of the end of World War I.

Hamish Scott’s poem Scapa Flow – which he wrote in Gaelic three years ago – BY LUCINDA CAMERON won a com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by the Never Such In­no­cence char­ity, who were set up to give chil­dren a voice in the com­mem­o­ra­tions.

The 15-year-old, from the Isle of Har­ris, was one of more than 100 chil­dren in­vited to a tea party hosted by Vice Ad­mi­ral Sir Tim Lau­rence. Hamish read out an English trans­la­tion of his poem.

The teen will also at­tend the Ar­mistice Cen­te­nary Ser­vice of Thanks­giv­ing at West­min­ster Abbey to­mor­row on be­half of the char­ity.
