The pioneering work of Elsie Inglis and the Scottish Women's Hospitals is one of the most amazing stories of the First World War. From their inception in Edinburgh in 1914 to the establishment of units in France, Serbia and Russia, the achievements and courage of the members of the SWH is beyond parallel — yet it is a story largely forgotten in the city of its origins. Hear what prompted Inglis to establish the unit, the struggles and successes they faced and the legacy they have left for future generations.

Ailsa Clarke's interest in WW1 was sparked as a 16 year old on her high school battlefield trip. She went on as an adult to become a tour guide on the Western Front before going into secondary school teaching. She is also a living historian who specialises in portraying women on active service during the conflict.

Also includes coffee, cakes and a special tour.
