History of the Scottish National War Memorial

20 June 2011

Opened in 1927, the Scottish National War Memorial is one of the most impressive physical commemorations built following The Great War.

Though not a memorial owned by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the aims of the two institutions are very similar - that the names of each person killed from a specific locality during the First World War - should be remembered forever.

Filmed on the day of the annual service of commemoration at the Memorial, this film explains why the Scottish National War Memorial remains relevant in the 21st century.
