Event description

Description

The stunningly beautiful Scottish National War Memorial holds the names of hundreds of thousands of Scots who fell in action during the First World War, from the Shetlands to the Borders. Virtually no part of the country was untouched by war - and its effects were devastating in small communities.

Hear the stories of the men from the small island of Lismore in the Inner Hebrides who served and fell in fronts across Europe, from France and Flanders to Gallipoli and Salonika. Drawing on original service papers, regimental histories, newspaper reports from the day and a good dash of local legend, the stories of these men are both fascinating and poignantly representative of all who fought in the war to end all wars.

Ailsa Clarke's interest in WW1 was sparked as a 16-year-old on her high school battlefield trip. She went on as an adult to become a tour guide on the Western Front before going into secondary school teaching. She is also a practioner of living history who specialises in portraying women on active service during the conflict.

All of our lecture mornings cost £9 and include a friendly lecture where you have the opportunity to meet our guest lecturer, have coffee and cakes and get a special tour.
