List of songs
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.
From the Director and the cast, a huge thanks to WW100, Poppy Scotland and Legion Scotland for their
constant support throughout the last two years. It was a wonderful journey.
