Invergordon in WWII


Following on from our project to research WWI remains, a new project run by ARCH on behalf of Invergordon Museum and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Beinn Tharsuinn Community Benefit fund, began last summer investigating the impact of World War II on Invergordon. 

Invergordon was no less busy in World War II, but the focus was very different. We spoke to local residents with memories of the war years, looked at archive information, aerial photographs, old photographs and other sources. During the last few sessions we gathered our findings and created a new display within the museum which we opened as part of 2016 Highland Archaeology Festival.

Come along to see what we discovered. We also encourage anyone with memories or photographs of Invergordon in World War II to look at our display and add their information to our records.  

With so much interesting information gathered we decided to produce a booklet 'Warime Invergordon - a town transformed'. Available NOW from Invergordon Museum, only £6.50 per copy
