GIL recently acquired this interesting vinyl record – Gaelic Songs by James Campbell of Kintail (1897-1979).

According to the inlay notes, after a childhood in Lochalsh, followed by service in the Great War, Campbell came to live in London, where he worked in banking.

The notes paint an interesting picture of the Gaelic community in London a century ago.
