Commemorating the Battle of Jutland

On 31 May Orkney will host the national commemoration of the centenary of the Battle of Jutland. As part of this, St Magnus Cathedral is the first venue in Scotland to host the very moving Poppies: Weeping Window between 22 April and 12 June. I’ve just been trained as one of the volunteer hosts. Earlier today, when walking the dog, was excited to see the exhibition arriving.
