Next year marks the centenary of the 1914-18 conflict and The Royal British Legion has launched the Voices of Veterans campaign to remember everyone who fought then and since.
The charity hopes veterans and their families will take part to help preserve stories passed down through generations. Exhibitions will take place nationwide, featuring veterans' stories, letters, photos and memorabilia as part of its commemoration of "the war to end all wars".
Kevin Gray, chief executive of The Royal British Legion Scotland, said: "The campaign will give a voice to veterans, whether they left military service yesterday or 50-plus years ago. It's a wonderful opportunity to preserve stories often passed down through families.
The Scottish Government has a series of events planned to mark the anniversary next year and First Minister Alex Salmond is backing The Royal British Legion campaign.
He said: "It's fantastic to see the biggest veterans' charity in Scotland launch the Voices of Veterans campaign to give people a chance to learn about those who served in that conflict and wars since then."
