To mark the centenary of the start of the First World War this Monday, August 4, a video has been produced to go on show at the Tolbooth Museum.

The collaborative project between Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Archives, Stonehaven Heritage Society and the Tolbooth Museum will go on show from Monday. The video is the ending of a exhibition that will be on show at the Tolbooth through to the end of October.

The short video entitled “Stonehaven War & Peace 1914-1918 - Remembering with Honour” uses a combination of archive material held by Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Archives along with newspaper articles and illustrated with photographs from the Stonehaven Heritage Society’s archive. The video looks at enlistment, conscription, the role of women and Children in the war effort and commemoration. It is hoped that people will be encouraged to find out more about family members and how Stonehaven as a community was affected by the Great War.
