a demobilised solidier.
Scottish life after the First World War is the subject of a major exhibition at the National Library of Scotland.
'A Better World?' explores many aspects of what happened in Scotland after the Armistice was signed on 11 November 1918.
As well as demobilisation and commemoration, the exhibition looks at the struggle for better living and working conditions. It also covers the changing political landscape and the emerging Scottish cultural and political identity during the 1920s.
Exhibits include rare or unique items held in the Library's collections. Among them are letters, photographs and personal mementoes of those directly impacted by four years of conflict in Europe.
Visitors are invited to reflect on on what life would have been like for those who survived the Great War.
