Dr Mike Taylor will give a lecture looking at 'official' souvenirs of the Great War. A surprising number of war relics were distributed across the UK by a number of official organisations. Ranging from bayonets, rifles and machine-guns to heavy artillery and tanks their display was not without controversy. Once prominent landmarks in many towns and villages, most were consigned to the scrap heap and have left little trace. Michael Taylor will tell their story using examples from Tayside, Scotland and beyond.
