Monday 27 July

Breezy day with varying amounts of cloud and the odd downpour. Not cold, the mercury currently at 18C / 64F. Continuing my transcription of the local Roll of Honour for the First World War, bringing the total (at time of posting) to 4,675. I manage up to 700 a day before I turn square-eyed, something that is a normal state of affairs this end. The final total is probably around 6,700, so with a bit of luck it should be done by the end of this week. The Roll of Honour takes you round the Isle of Lewis counter-clockwise, which has left me on Great Bernera. I'll continue into Uig, then across to Lochs, where the listing ends. I intend to post this on the internet, but am running into the daft situation that the conversion from 2 MB Excel file results in a 40 MB HTML file. Ridiculous.
