An illustrated talk discussing how the community in Portobello dealt with, and reacted to, the changes brought by war.


These changes include the billeting of large numbers of soldiers locally, the losses community members suffered and how they coped when the war ended. Although this may be a case-study of Portobello, it reflects the wider context of the war.

Dr Margaret Munro has an honours degree in Scottish Historical Studies from the University of Edinburgh. She is a founder Director and Chair of Portobello Heritage Trust. Margaret is also a member of the editorial board of community newspaper the Portobello Reporter and contributes articles to this quarterly paper.

Archie Foley has an Honours degree in History from the University of Edinburgh and spent most of his working life teaching that subject in East Lothian. After retiring early he became a freelance researcher, genealogist and family historian.
