The Scotland's War project, organised by Edinburgh Historian Yvonne McEwen, aims to honour the sacrifices of the Scottish men and women involved in the War 100 years ago.
A website has been created to host local information, stories and details of commemorative activities within the various Scottish regions.
Information specific to Clackmannanshire is also available.
The aim of the project is it to build a picture of the contributions and sacrifices made by the people of Clackmannanshire during WW1 for publication on the Scotland's War website. This can only be achieved by collecting documents of the time, photographs, letters and diaries etc.
Scotland's War Project welcomes contributions from the public, institutions and organisations on any information relating to Clackmannanshire and the Scots in WW1 and its aftermath.
If you have any items or stories you wish to offer please contact us using the details at the foot of this page.
The Victoria Cross (VC) is the highest military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy" to members of the armed forces of various Commonwealth countries, and previous British Empire territories.
