From Gretna to Gallipoli

About From Gretna to Gallipoli

Spirits are high as the 7th Royal Scots- ‘Leith’s Own’ march out to war in Spring 1915.

Who could guess they would be involved in Britain’s worst rail disaster before they had even left Scotland?

Hear true stories of the 7th’s epic gallantry in their climactic battles with the Ottoman Turks in the blazing heat of the Gallipoli Peninsula.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for From Gretna to Gallipoli are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
