Now here's a band with some musical history! Formed by Paul Gurvitz, who earlier had a top 10 hit in Europe with the band Gun (Race with the Devil), who evolved into Three Man Army and Baker Gurvitz Army, with Ginger Baker of Cream. Other members include Brian Parrish, who formed the prog rock band Badger, keyboardist Tony Kaye of Yes, Mike Kellie of Spooky Tooth on drums, Rick Wills of Foreigner on bass, and Mickey Gallager on keys (Ian Drury). The latter three later became the nucleus of Peter Frampton's Camel. Top all of that off with the Beatles' producer George Martin laying down the string arrangements and layering the band's sound into a brilliant tapestry of music.

In the summer of 1914, a company of Cameron Highlanders left Portree and sailed off to war. On the battlefields of France, these raw recruits would meet the Maxim machine gun - invented in London, and capable of firing a hellish 666 rounds per minute. The German army deployed these weapons with mathematical efficiency. Neil Oliver examines the development of these ruthless, impersonal weapons, and the legacy they left on one Hebridean community.
