Description


In 2017, locally-born historian Neil McLennan found evidence that Baberton Golf Clubhouse was where the three most important poets of the Great War … Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves first met on 13th October 1917 to discuss the war and their poetry. One hundred years to the day Neil tells the story.

Neil McLennan is Senior Lecturer and Director of Leadership Programmes at the School of Education, University of Aberdeen. He spent his early working life as a history teacher and faculty head of social studies. He was Head of History at Tynecastle High School in Edinburgh, the school where war poet Wilfred Owen taught in 1917. Neil has published on a broad range of areas from history, education, current affairs, skill development and values leadership. Over the past decade he has researched Wilfred Owen's time in Edinburgh and has written on this topic in a number of journal articles and is hoping to publish a book in 2018; the anniversary of the end of the war and Owen's death
