    May 1915 (label fragment verso). In original exhibition frame.

    Note: Inchcolm is known as the 'Iona of the East'. Despite it's small size, this island in the Firth of Forth has been a significant place in Scottish history and lore. St Columba supposedly visited it in 567 and there is an impressive 12th Century Augustinian Abbey. It was repeatedly raided by the English during the Wars of Scottish Independence and even has a mention in Shakespeare's Macbeth.
