To the best of my knowledge the resources found on this site are in the public domain.


I have completed an MLitt in Scottish History at Dundee University.


The research part of that degree involved evaluating soldier correspondence that was published in the Scottish regional press during the years of the Great War.


The final dissertation has been saved to this site (see Files) as there are some interesting comparisons to be made between the Advertiser and other Scottish newspapers.
