Edinburgh at War 1939-45

Scotland was of grave strategic importance during the war because of its geographical position and its capital was the location of a significant number of important military and civil organisations.

Edinburgh Castle became the HQ of the Scottish Home Forces whilst the Forth was a vitally important port and was heavily protected even before the start of the war.

Its importance was marked by its attracting the first air raid of the war on mainland Britain when a force of German bombers was sent to attack naval shipping in the Forth on 16th October 1939. The raid was intercepted by the RAF which shot down at least two bombers and the entire action was witnessed by many civilians on the ground.

The raid also caused the first civilian casualties when two women were injured in Edinburgh and two men machine-gunned in Portobello.
