"A standing ovation raised the roof of the Queen’s Hall for several minutes after the show had finished. It was a stirring end to a night commemorating a terrible tragedy, one that left the entire audience moved and sombre, but strangely elated."

 

Of the 700,000 Scots who joined the forces, more than 100,000 died. Nearly every village, city and town in Scotland has some form of memorial displaying the names of their war dead.

WW100 Scotland aims to inform people about Scotland's unique contribution to World War One and help them discover the effects of the war on their local communities and its lasting impact on life in Scotland today.
