Explore Edinburgh Castle’s war time story

Callum Hand, aged 10, meets re-enactors playing soldiers from the 1914 Gordon Highlanders regiment ahead of Edinburgh Castle’s World War One event, taking place at the castle, on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October.

Callum Hand, aged 10, meets re-enactors playing soldiers from the 1914 Gordon Highlanders regiment ahead of Edinburgh Castle’s World War One event, taking place at the castle, on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October.

In the Centenary year marking the outbreak of the First World War, Edinburgh Castle will be hosting a special event exploring its own Great War story.

Over the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October, visitors will have the opportunity to take a journey through the nation’s contribution to the Great War both on the frontline and closer to home.

As well as this, those passing through the castle’s historic gates can also discover the castle’s, perhaps, lesser known role as one of Scotland’s 180 Military and Red Cross auxiliary hospitals that were created throughout the First World War to care for casualties.

There will also be the opportunity to discover what life would be like for a soldier during WWI. Throughout the course of the weekend, re-enactors of the Gordon Highlanders regiment will be on hand to demonstrate what it might have been like for a new soldier from enlisting to undergoing training drills. The team will also explore how an injured soldier might have been treated as well as highlighting the evolution of pioneering medical techniques which went on to influence modern medicine today.

Meanwhile, the castle’s Great Hall will offer interactive handling sessions showcasing a selection of authentic items dating back to the start of the First World War.

Edinburgh Castle’s Executive Manager, Nick Finnigan, said: “The castle has played many different roles in significant events over the centuries, however, this event will give a sense of what the castle might have been like during its lesser known role as a small 60 bed hospital during the First World War.

 

“Over the weekend, visitors will also be able to discover  more about  the War on both the frontline and at home,  whilst re-enactors will be exploring what it might have been like for a new soldier and how the injured might have been treated.

 

“There will also be the opportunity for the public to handle authentic items from the First World War in a series of interactive sessions.”

 

Edinburgh Castle’s Great War event takes place on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October 2014 from 12noon – 4pm. Entry to this event is included in the price of admission  to Edinburgh Castle.

 

Please note that Edinburgh Castle guided tours will not take place on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October and that the re-enactments take place as part of a scheduled programme of timed events.

Auch am Lahn-Camino tut sich was:

 

Hallo Herr Schäfer,

zusammen mit Beate Steger arbeite ich an einer deutschlandweiten Übersicht der wichtigsten Jakobswege mit Karten, Bildern, GPS-Tracks, Hinweisen auf Pilgerführer und andere Informationen, siehe www.deutsche-jakobswege.de.

Wir würden gerne den Lahn-Camino in die Übersicht aufnehmen. Dazu einige Fragen:

Ist der Weg gekennzeichnet?

Gibt es GPS-Tracks für den Weg oder eine genaue Karte mit dem eingezeichneten Verlauf?

Ist eine Verbindung von Marburg bis Limburg geplant?

Über eine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen.

Mit freundlichen Pilgergrüßen

Betreff: Re: Lahn-Camino

Hallo, Herr Bahmüller, ganz kurz, weil ich im Moment aus Schottland wiederkomme. Weitere Fragen gerne, wenn ich ab morgen Luft geholt habe.

Ja, der Lahn-Camino läuft auf der linken Lahnseite von Wetzlar bis Lahnstein und ist durchgehend markiert.

Ja, es gibt GPS-Tracks – aber dafür geben Sie mir bitte ein wenig Zeit.

Von Marburg nach Wetzlar ist derzeit keine Anbindung geplant, die Strecke ist aber gut als Elisabethpfad gekennzeichnet und deshalb gut zu gehen.

Ab Diez ist der Weg in die Karten des GeoAmtes Rheinland-Pfalz aufgenommen.

Marburg – Wetzlar – Führer für den Elisabethpfad (über den Elisabethpfadverein Marburg)

Wetzlar – Lahnstein – Der Jakobsweg von Wetzlar nach Lahnstein – Ein Pilgerwanderführer für den Lahn-Camino

Via Jutlandica (Flensburg-Glückstadt), Rhein-Camino (Neuss – Koblenz, ist derzeit von Neuss bis Köln markiert, Weiterführung ist vom LVR Rheinland geplant), Mosel-Camino (Koblenz-Trier) sind alle markiert, wenn Sie weitere Angaben brauchen, einfach noch einmal melden.

Subject: Via Jutlandica

Sehr geehrter Herr Schäfer,
wir wollen am 26. September ds. Js. in Krusau die Pilgerschaft antreten auf der Via Jutlandica,
mit Ihrem Wanderführer in der Tasche.
Ist die Ausschilderung so gut und ausreichend, dass man ohne Wanderkarten das Ziel erreicht?
Oder sind die von Ihnen angegebenen Karten des Landesvermessungsamts Schleswig-Holstein notwendig?
Über eine kurze Antwort würden wir uns freuen.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Corgarff Castle offers an insight into life in the 18th century as redcoat soldiers occupy the castle

 

Visitors to Corgarff Castle in Aberdeenshire this week will have the opportunity to travel back in time to the 18th century, in Meet the Garrison, as members of the Lace Wars re-enactment society depict the daily life of a soldier living in the barracks in the 1750s.

 

A Year of Homecoming 2014 event, Redcoat soldiers will be occupying the castle on 16, 17 and 18 September to tell the story of Pulteney’s Regiment (13th Foot), which occupied the castle in the mid-18th century.

 

Visitors will be able to hear the soldiers’ tales as they explain why they are occupying the site and give presentations on daily life in the castle. There will also be drill displays and weaponry displays.

Lorna Ewan, Head of Visitor Experience, Content and Learning for Historic Scotland, which runs the castle said: “Redcoats arrived at Corgarff Castle after the Battle of Culloden in 1746, and the castle was gutted internally to make way for soldiers’ barracks. Meet the Garrison is an opportunity for visitors to learn more about this fascinating period in the castle’s history, and with weaponry and drill displays as well as presentations on castle life, it promises to be a fun and informative event for the whole family.”

Meet the Garrison will take place from 10-5pm on 16, 17 and 18 September.  Entry is included in admission to the Castle.

£1.5 million aid for historic buildings

More than £1.5 million has been awarded to help repair seven historic buildings across Scotland as part of Historic Scotland’s Building Repairs Grants scheme.

New book details Scotland’s First World War contribution and heritage

An extensively illustrated new book, Scotland’s First World War, exploring the physical legacy of the war in Scotland, has been launched in Orkney.

The book follows an audit of First World War buildings and structures in Scotland, which was commissioned by Historic Scotland and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) in 2013. This identified the surprising wealth and variety of buildings and monuments across the country – over 900 in all – greatly increasing our understanding of the impact of the conflict in Scotland. In many cases their First World War connections were previously unknown.
