Scotland’s Fishing Industry: WW1 (S1-3)

What impact did the First World War have on Scotland’s fishing industry and its communities?

Students will discover how fisherfolk supported the war effort, through the lens of an East Neuk family, The Wilsons. They will examine written sources, museum objects and testimony from the period, immersing themselves in the realities of the First World War and developing an understanding of Scottish life a hundred years ago.
