Scots at War 
Living History Society

"Where history comes to life"


About us

Scots at War is a living history group dedicated to the memory, study and appreciation of not only the military, but also the political, economic and social forces that shaped Scotland from 1899 to 1945.

Following the lives of soldiers, nurses, factory workers, ship builders and more, we make it our mission to bring this important part of Scotland's history to life.
