Event Details

An exhibition highlighting the stories of some of those commemorated on our local war memorials, how their lives were touched by war and how our communities remember them.

Lest We Forget: Remembrances of World War I highlights the individual stories of local people who served in various theatres of war to show how Anstruther and Cellardyke contributed to, and were affected by, the war effort. The Scottish Fisheries Museum, in partnership with the Anstruther and Kilrenny Burgh Collection and with funding from the Royal Burgh of Anstruther Common Good Fund and McCarthy and Stone, has brought together numerous items that show the role ordinary people played in this extraordinary event.

Personal narratives, intertwined with public efforts, illustrate one community’s attempt to grieve, to comprehend and to endure, and ask us to consider how we should remember in future.

Entry included in museum admission. Open Mon - Sat 10 - 4.30; Sun 12 - 4.30 except Christmas and New Year.
