Edinburgh Castle – National War Museum

On Monday 14th November, we went to the National War Museum at Edinburgh Castle to find out more about how WW2 affected the lives of people living in Scotland. As part of our “Wartime Life Experience” workshop, we learnt about the real-life experiences of Scottish evacuees, prisoners of war, sailors and those left at home and were able to examine letters, photographs and uniforms. We were also able to see how the homes would have been furnished and what would have been used in the kitchen.
Our visit to the Castle coincided with a visit being made by some important guests to commemorate Remembrance Day and we were extremely lucky to witness a 21-Gun Salute.
