19th May 2009 - Fereday Prize Winner
We have now received the last of 2009’s Fereday award prize-winning essays; ‘Lord Kitchener’ by Adam Johnston. Adam’s project is an in – depth and humorous study of Kitchener’s life and makes excellent use of both primary and secondary sources. The most interesting section contains the testimonies of relatives of Orkney residents who took in survivors from the sunken HMS Hampshire and evidence of their continued friendships with the young men who they fed, warmed and clothed that night in 1916.
