WW1 Soldier inspires Sainsbury's Christmas TV Advert....

The experiences of Capt Robert Hamilton OG, and his fellow soldiers in the First World War, have inspired the Sainsbury's Christmas TV advertisement, described by the Today programme on Radio 4 as the 'greatest advert ever made'. 

Andrew Hamilton, Grandson of Robert Hamilton, came to Glenalmond earlier this term to talk about his Grandfather. Capt Hamilton's story, based on his diaries from the trenches, which include accounts of the Christmas Truce, form the basis of Andrew Hamilton's book, Meet at Dawn, Unarmed.
