Registration notes: The 2,000+ pages on the Scotland’s War (1914-1919) Charity’s website at reflect the significant sacrifices made by the Scottish people on the Home and Fighting Fronts, and the Scottish Diaspora, in the Great War. This is the Scotland’s War (1914-1919) Charity’s commemorative tartan. The dominant red colour represents the sacrifices that were made in the War. It is not generally understood that the War was not technically and legally over until the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919. Until then, there was an armistice which is a formal agreement of warring parties to stop fighting. The Scotland’s War (1914-1919) Project will continue until the centenary of the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919, which ended the War. Scotland’s War (1914-1919) was formally accepted for registration as a charity by the Scottish Charity Regulator on 17 November 2016 and the website hosts the contributions from 21 local authority partners in Scotland, and from individual contributors at home and abroad in the Scottish Diaspora. This followed the decision by the University of Edinburgh not to fund the original Heritage Lottery Funded project. Our work and legacy projects of the Charity is approached in a sensitive, respectful and ethical manner, and ensures that the Scotland’s War (1914-1919) commemorative initiatives are relevant to all ethnic, religious and secular parts of Scottish society.
