How a fisherman won a Victoria Cross

6 August 2014 Last updated at 16:08 BST

With the centenary of British involvement in World War One this week, we have been commemorating the Scots who were involved.

Joseph Watt is the only fisherman ever to be awarded the military's highest honour for bravery - the Victoria Cross.

He ordered his small converted fishing boat to attack a battle cruiser in the Adriatic.

After the war he returned to life as a fisherman, uncomfortable being called a hero.
