The North East at War


The following pages tell the story of how the two great wars of the 20th century effected the people of North East Scotland at home and on the battle front.




An interesting link here to information regarding Duff House in Banff, now a popular visitor attraction and art gallery, but at the time of WWII it found numerous uses including that of a Prisoner-of-War Camp. The page includes notes and quotes from author Dr David Clark's "One Boy's War," his fascinating account of life in Banff during the war years.
