Tommy’s war: a first World War diary

This class explores the Home Front in Glasgow during the First World War, as recorded in the diaries of Thomas Cairns Livingstone, a shipping clerk who lived in Govanhill and worked in the city centre. His daily musings – published as “Tommy’s War: A First World War Diary” – show both a city devoted to supporting the war effort and a family doing their best in trying circumstances.
