Spruce Baillie from Edinburgh. Posted 4 Aug 2004.
I am currently doing research into World War II in Scotland for an educational CD-ROM for Scottish Schools. I'd love to be able to talk to someone who was in the Womens Land Army or any women who were involved in the war effort in Scotland, anyone who was sent away from home in the city as a child to the country and an ex POW who decided to stay in Scotland following the war. Can anyone out there help me? If so please contact me at

I sm interested in finding out more about evacuees from Glasgow to other parts of Scotland. My mother (born 1936)was evacuated but cannot remember anything. Apparently her experience was so traumatic that she returned home mute, and had to learn how to speak again to members of her family. Is it possible to trace where the children went? She lived in Priesthill, and her name was Elizabeth Noble McHardy.
