Scottish War Blinded's Centenary Book

Scottish War Blinded released a limited edition centenary book in December 2015 as a celebration of the charity's first one hundred years supporting visually impaired veterans in Scotland.

The book begins in 1915 when Scottish War Blinded was established, by the organisation now known as Royal Blind, to support soldiers returning from the battlefields of World War One. Soldiers were provided essential rehabilitation and vocational skills training as a means to support independent living, employment and engagement in all aspects of community life.

The book describes all the significant developments throughout the charity's first one hundred years including the Linburn Estate, Queen's Crescent Glasgow and after-care as well as many emotive tributes from members past and present.

The book concludes with a description of the work Scottish War Blinded does today through its Linburn Centre and Outreach service as well as look forward to buidling a new centre for visually impaired veterans in Paisley.
