Join us for a conference on how the First World War has been remembered over the past 100 years. Hear from an international panel of experts and learn more about how and why we remember.
After the Armistice in November 1918, millions of soldiers hoped they would soon go home. But demobilising so many troops was a huge task. How best to mark the Allied victory and commemorate the fallen also became subjects for debate.
This Scottish poppy, currently on display in Society gallery, dates from the early days of the Poppy Appeal.
The First World War was the first truly global conflict. It cost the lives of over ten million soldiers worldwide.
The Second World War took place between 1939 and 1945 and was the bloodiest conflict in human history.
