WW100 Scotland invites you to attend an event within the unique premises of 603 (City of Edinburgh) Squadron, Royal Auxiliary Air Force.
You will have the opportunity to see inside this building, which has changed little structurally in the past 100 years, to hear how Scotland and Scots played a part in the development of aerial warfare in WWI, and to see some interesting items from Montrose Air Heritage Museum.
Entry is free but places are limited so early booking is advised.
8 May 2017, 7.00pm - 8.30pm
Accompanying the National Theatre of Scotland production ‘The 306: Day’, which follows the lives of three ordinary women fighting to be heard during WWI, this talk will focus on the making of the production as well as covering the history and research behind the women and families featured in the piece. With panellists Oliver Emanuel (writer), Gareth Williams (composer) and Lesley Orr (feminist historian and researcher), the event will also discuss the role played by women on the front line and the home front during the war.
Taking place at the Station Hotel in Perth, the talk is free but ticketed, with advance booking recommended.
