The project was devised and led by the Falkirk Community Trust Heritage Learning team and forms part of a programme of activity developed by the Trust to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War.

Designed to bring generations together to research and create a touring ‘memory box’ exhibition telling local First World War stories, the ‘Our Area in the First World War’ project benefited from £9,900 of Heritage Lottery Funding.
