  • When you climb Edinburgh Castle, you'll see the building in the middle of it. Inside, the Memorial War Memorial is a tribute to those who died in the Second World War. On my travels to London and Edinburgh, I was able to see the respect for the soldiers, the reverence for the soldiers, and the respect for the warriors who died in the war. Personally, i was envious of the British atmosphere.

  • It is a monument in honor of all the Scots who have died in the different wars in which they have fought, the two world wars occupy a good part of the halls, but the words written on the walls are exciting, "To all the soldiers of all the cat woulds and ranks, who gave their lives in the battles of... (description of the different conflicts), their names will never be forgotten and will remain written here) something like this and also books with red covers, many books, with the names of all the casi. I wish in Spain there would be such a monument.

  • Austere building to commemorate those in Scotland who participated in WWI. A casket in the shrine contains books of 1921 listing the war dead from the Great War. These listing are also available for visitors to the Memorial to view. The stained glass is magnificent and identifies all types of war activities. Interestingly the work of Scotland's women is well represented. Not just those who were nursing at the front, but nurses at home, factory workers and land girls too. Very moving.
  • An incredibly impressive space to pay your respects, beautifully presented. It's a shame some seem to have ignored the signs saying photography isn't allowed in here, have some respect people, please.
