|An item on the Great War Forum - details at:
The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded £10,000 to help fund an event to be held in the Burgh Hall in Dunoon from 2nd to 8th October 2017.
Sandbank Community Development Trust has received the award to mark the Centenary of the First World War, and the project will enable local people in Cowal to come together to preserve the memories and heritage of the people who lived through the First World War. Support has been given by the Argyll & Bute Council Centennial Commemoration Steering Group led by the Lord Lieutenant Patrick Stewart.
Working in partnership with the Culture and Library Service of Argyll & Bute Council we have planned a free Exhibition featuring The Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders, the Argyll Mountain Battery, Women at War, and other contributions made by Cowal people to the war effort.
