Jock’s Jocks: Voices of Scottish Soldiers from the First World War

Sunday 6th October – 12.30pm – Library upstairs

North East folksinger Jock Duncan spent over 50 years interviewing ‘the Jocks’ – Scottish veterans of the Great War. Jock’s labour of love is a unique glimpse into the lives of those who left the farms of Aberdeenshire, Angus and Perthshire for France, Flanders and the shores of Gallipoli. Gary West, who edited the collection, shares these fascinating tales.

Chair: James Robertson

Tickets for all Portobello Book Festival events are free and can be picked up from Portobello Library in Rosefield Avenue.
