Scotland’s Commemorations Panel for The First World War has announced a five-year program of events aimed at marking the centenary of the war with particular emphasis on Scotland’s contributions and sacrifices.  Beginning with a recreation of a WW1 drum-head service at Edinburgh Castle in August of 2014, the program of events will focus on key battles and events  from The Great War in which Scottish troops were particularly involved.

The Commemorations Panel is headed by former British Army chaplain Rev. Norman Drummond and represents collaboration by numerous government, veteran and community organizations throughout the country.
