Scots in Great War London
With HRH The Princess Royal as its patron, the group is presenting a commemorative book with chapters written by each of the ten organisations, entitled Scots in Great War London: A Community at Home and on the Front Line 1914-1919. Published by Helion, it will be launched at a special event at the Caledonian Club on Tuesday 26 June. The book was edited by Paul McFarland with Hugh Pym and has a Foreword by HRH The Princess Royal. In addition, a series of events will reveal the breadth of experience of Scots in London during the Great War. Highlights include a lecture, a theatrical production, a concert, a commemorative rugby fixture and a ceilidh. There will also be special Remembrance Sunday services on 11 November. This initiative remembers the conflict as well as the effect it had on those who went away to fight and those who remained at home to help.
