The Beaches of St Valery

 

The play follows the life of a young Scottish Soldier of the Queens Own Cameron Highlanders and  the 51st Highland Division  from 1938 to the end of the war in 1946.

We see our everyman soldier  go from a carefree 18 year old  roads engineer to a battle-hardened veteran of 26.

The photograph below shows the CO of the 51st Highland Division, Major General Victor Fortune surrendering to General Erwin Rommel at St Valery-en-Caux on the 12th of June, 1940. This  event forms the central motif of the play.
