Project Team: West Lothian Council

Project Title: West Lothian And The Forgotten War

Through "West Lothian and the Forgotten War", West Lothian Council’s Museum Service, together with the Workers’ Educational Association, will form a History Detectives group. The group will gather research about conflicts that have touched the lives of those living in West Lothian from World War II to the Korean War, in addition to National Service. The findings will be recorded for a documentary film, which will include some oral histories and a booklet. The project will also see two primary schools - Balbardie School in Bathgate and Torphichen School - linking with the Korean War Veterans’ Association in the Lothian & Borders, which established the Scottish Korean War Memorial in the Bathgate Hills. Activities will include visits to the memorial in addition to the National War Museum at Edinburgh Castle.
