This week the last St Kildan died.
Rachel Johnson was born on St Kilda in July 1922 and was 8 years old when the island was evacuated.
In my job as an NHS doctor for our elders I have found that childhood memories not only remain but become more vivid with age. This is generally true even for those diagnosed with dementia. This being another myth about dementia that St Kildans would have understood as a myth.
This film is for Rachel. Let her anchor go.
