Remembering: The Christmas Truce

Great War Dundee’s latest event, Remembering: The Christmas Truce took place on Saturday 6th December 2014 at Discovery Point. Experts from the Black Watch Museum and Castle showed us how we can find out more about our family’s military past and we even heard about the rumoured football match on the trenches – it seems that it really happened!

The most popular talk of the day explored the impact that the First World War had on local footballs clubs, Dundee FC and Dundee United FC (or Dundee Hibernian as it was then!) Over 119 people attended the event and, by all accounts, it was a great success!
