As part of our special events to mark this important anniversary, local artist Allison Smith, whose grandfather served with The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) during in the First World War, has collaborated with primary and secondary schools across South Lanarkshire to produce this temporary display at Low Parks Museum.
