Remembering Scotland at War

Remembering Scotland at War 2010 - That Swing SensationOn 24 June That Swing Sensation, along with Gary and Susan from the Fly Right Dance Company, were delighted to be part of the launch celebrations in Edinburgh Castle for the Remembering Scotland at War website.
The pioneering virtual musem has been developed by Museums Galleries Scotland to showcase and encourage personal accounts from civilians, younger and older veterans, and currently serving military of how conflict has affected them and will be used to educate future generations on conflicts ranging from the First World War up to the most recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
During the afternoon the Queen Anne Room of Edinburgh Castle resounded to the sounds of Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington as veterans, guests and dignitaries were treated to a selection of big band classics.
