WWII veterans given lottery cash (Scotland)





Three World War II veterans are among those to be given cash to return to their wartime locations after a new round of lottery grants were announced.

The men have received a share of grants of £7,925 from the Big Lottery Fund's 'Heroes Return 2' programme.

Alexander Jackson, from Tranent, Angus Galloway, from Edinburgh and James Peers, from Bearsden, will visit Italy, Canada and London respectively.

This summer marks the 65th anniversary of the end of the war.
