During WW II, the Arctic Convoys - merchant ships escorted by Navy vessels - sailed

to the Soviet Union delivering vital supplies. The voyages were desperately dangerous

and the conditions cruel.

Some of the sailings left from Loch Ewe, and today the people of Poolewe have taken the

commemoration of those who served on the Convoys to their hearts.

Anna Magnusson explores the stories of those who experienced the Arctic Convoys, stories

which capture the enormity of so many sacrifices made.

The 11 o'clock silence will be marked at the Russian Arctic Convoys Memorial at Cove, near Poolewe

in Wester Ross.
