This project was located in the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities from 1995-1999 and is funded by the Scots at War Trust. Colonel Diana Henderson was the Research Director.
The aim of the project is to research and collate information about Scots who served in the armed and civilian services in the 20th century. It is based on a website which quickly attracted an average of 1,000 worldwide users per month. The research and website publication is augmented by seminars involving veterans, scholars and students. Subjects have included The Royal Navy, The 51st Highland Division, Prisoners of War in South East Asia, Indian Army Scots, The Secret War, The Sergeants Mess and The Women’s Land Army.
