Forth Front


Author Geoff Bailey is the Keeper of Archaeology and Local History at Falkirk Community Trust’s Museums Services and for his new book the Forth Front he spent many hours recording the memories of those working in the docks, boatyard and many other vital occupations throughout the war. When Second World War broke out in September 1939 the coastal communities of the River Forth were pressed into the service of the Nation and its crucial defence. Grangemouth and Bo’ness as well as other smaller communities along the River Forth were given over to a whole range of military activities including shipbuilding and repair, conversion and refitting of merchant vessels and supplying the Admiralty with provisions, weapons and manpower. This book records the stories of the many thousands of local men and women who served in these vital occupations during the War.
