Commemorating WW1 100 years on and remembering 's involvement.
World War One touched the lives of millions of Scots at home and abroad, and continues to resonate today.
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.
The commemorations, which mark the 100th anniversary of the war, are a chance to remember the sacrifices made and reflect on what we can, and should, learn from the war which was meant to end all wars.
