A Royal Navy officer who became one of the first men to die in World War I has been commemorated in a book by the grandson he never met.
James White found a diary written by his grandfather while clearing out his mother's flat following her death fifteen years ago.
And he was so intrigued by the discovery that he decided to tour the length of the Mediterranean Sea to follow his grandfather's steps to the places he visited a hundred years before.
James McKay, of Craigellachie in Speyside, died two months after the war began when the cruiser HMS Pathfinder he was working on was torpedoed by a German submarine.
It was the first time in history that a warship had been torpedoed by a submarine and he was one of 232 men who died in the explosion off the coast of Scotland on September 5, 2014.
