Scots in the Great War is a living history group dedicated to the memory, study and appreciation of not only the military, but also the political, economic and social forces that shaped Scotland during and just after the Great War.
Following the lives of soldiers, nurses, factory workers, ship builders and more, we make it our mission to bring this important part of Scotland's history to life
