What's happening?

The cover of Jock's Jocks: Voices of Scottish Soldiers from the First World WarThe next big event the Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust is helping to organise will be a book launch for a book by Gordon Duncan’s father, Jock Duncan, edited by Trustee Gary West and co-published by the European Ethnological Research Centre.

Jock’s Jocks is an incredible collection of stories of 59 Scottish veterans of the Great War. Almost 80 years in the making, it’s all told in rich, earthy Scots (full glossary provided!).   An Introduction explains the background to the interview collecting and includes a detailed timeline of key battles and events.

Jock, the Trust salutes you!

The book can be ordered via the National Museums Scotland Shop, or on Amazon.

Full details of the launch event will be provided here soon.
