Fair Isle is Britain's most remote inhabited island, also claims the most remote primary school. Year around residents total about 65 people, 4 of those attend classes, with 1 other child in the nursery. This year the pupils at the local primary school researched the names on the islands war memorial. Using the information they gathered the pupils created a display for the local museum 'The George Waterson Memorial Centre'. This video was created by the school and presented to the Royal British Legion Scotland as part of the 2014 Primary School War Memorial Competition.
