Poppyscotland has launched a new digital tool for children to learn about the 75th anniversary of VE Day from their own homes.

The VE Day 75 resources contain interactive facts and stories about what was life was like for those living through the Second World War, with sections on evacuees, rationing and Churchill’s famous VE Day speech.

Scottish Government Minister for Children and Young People Maree Todd said: “Poppyscotland’s exceptional efforts during this difficult period will allow children throughout Scotland to continue to access these wonderful Second World War educational resources."


Shops are closing. Newspaper sales are falling. But we’ve chosen to keep our online journalism free because it’s so important that the people of Glasgow stay informed during this crisis.

To help us get through this, we’re asking readers who can afford it to contribute either £3, £5 or £8 a month to the Glasgow Times.

If you choose to sign up, we’ll also take away all the adverts – and deliver a digital version of the print paper to your device. Click here to help Save Your Times: www.glasgowtimes.co.uk/subscribe
