#WW100Scotland

MOST RECENT

Not GLP related, but definitely #proudteacher related - the past two years I’ve worked with student volunteers to write this book on the men from Wick who died in WWI in time for the centenary of armistice. They arrived today! #teachersofinstagram #teach #teacherlife #worldwarone #ww100scotland #ww100 #wwi #ww1 #history #wick #caithness #wickhighschool #remembrance

Earlier this May, on a cold and windy day on the Mull of Oa in #Scotland, a commemorative wreath laying service was held to remember the troop ships Tuscania and Otranto. The monument you see here was built by the American #RedCross in memory of the U.S. soldiers who gave their lives for their country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 1918, the Tuscania was carrying U.S. troops headed to the front lines in #WWI when it was torpedoed by a German U boat in the North Channel. Over 200 men were lost. The ship sank seven miles off the Mull of Oa where this monument now stands. In the wake of the disaster, the American Red Cross provided relief to the survivors and sent U.S. nurses to help care for wounded from its hospital at Mossley Hill in Liverpool.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In October 1918, the Otranto, also carrying US troops, collided with another ship in its convoy during a storm that impaired their navigational equipment. This accident happened on the west side of the island in Machir Bay. More than 400 lives were lost. In both tragic events, the island residents were tasked with pulling the survivors from the sea, caring for them, and burying the victims. #WW100Scotland 📸Credits: 1-2) Susan Watson, 3) Les Wilson

It was a privilege to be at Port Ellen on Isle of Islay today to honour those from there that served and lost their lives during WWI and also commemorate the loss of troopships SS Tuscania and HMS Otranto off the coast of Islay. The sinking of the Tuscania carrying US troops was the biggest loss of American lives in a single day since the American Civil War #isleofislay #hebrides #scotland #islay100 #usa #ww100scotland #royalnavy #USmilitary #WWI #lestweforget #travel

100 years ago, two American troopships sank off #islay. My great grandfather was the local police sergeant and played a big role in the rescue and the horrible aftermath. Today in Port Ellen, we remembered the heroism, courage and humanity of this special place. #islay #scotland #ww100scotland #portellen #war #remembrance #love #family #hebrides #island #islands

Happy #InternationalWomensDay!
Today we are thinking of all the incredible women of the First World War generation. Dr Elsie Inglis was one of the first British women to qualify as a doctor. The British Army refused to allow her to practice medicine during the War so she founded the Scottish Women’s Hospitals for Foreign Service. Dr Inglis and about 500 women travelled the world from 1914 - 1918, providing medical care in Corsica, France, Malta, Romania, Russia, Salonika (Thessaloniki), and Serbia, saving countless lives.
__________
Together with #ww100scotland we are encouraging entries to our poetry, art, and song competition that focus particularly of Dr Elsie Inglis and the Scottish Women’s Hospitals. There will be a special bonus prize for the top Elsie entry!
__________
The competition closing date is Friday 16th March, more info on our website- link in bio
