The Darkest Dawn- Call na h-Iolaire
The story of the Iolaire Tragedy

"At 1.55am on 1st January 1919, a naval yacht carrying sailors home on leave ran aground on rocks near the village of Holm, a mere 20 yards from the shore or the Isle of Lewis and less than half a mile from the safe harbour of Stornoway. HMY Iolaire was crowded with 280 mane, mostly naval reservists returning to the safety and comfort of their homes after the horrors of the Great War."

Malcolm Macdonald and Donald John MacLeod's painstaking research has taken decades and draws on an exceptional range of sources. The Darkest Dawn is a significant and enduring testament to all those aboard the Iolaire on the night of New Year 1919.
