Re-enactment group 'Gordon Highlanders 1914-1918' are bringing their authentic campsite and a wide range of activities and displays to Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life in Coatbridge this Saturday and Sunday.
The group, which has 30 members - many from the West of Scotland - travel around the UK putting on their popular show, which offers something for adults and children alike.
In the authentic army camp, visitors can meet group members in full uniform and ask them about their weapons and kit.
The 'soldiers' will also chat informally with visitors about the life of a Gordon Highlander during the Great War.
Group leader, 61-year-old Tom Greenshields, said: "I started the group about five years ago because I have had a life-long love of military history and of Scotland.
"There was no representation of the Highlanders or even of Scottish soldiers in the First World War, there was a huge void there.
"It was the most dreadful war we ever fought and it still has real resonance with people."
The Gordon Highlanders existed from 1881 until 1994 and took their name from the Clan Gordon.
It recruited mainly from the North-East of Scotland and soldiers stood out from the rest of the British Army thanks to their kilts and Highland regalia.
During the First World War, 21 battalions of Gordons served on the Western Front and in Italy.
They lost 29,000 men during the war.
In 2006 the Gordons were merged with other regiments to become The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
Tom added: "I think it's important that we remember the First World War and what it was about, if only so we can avoid making the same mistakes again.
"There's a great deal of interest in it from the public and a lot of mythology surrounding it.
"We don't have a particular view of the war to pedal but we're looking to get people thinking and talking about it.
"Next year is the centenary of the start of the war and the kilted Highland soldier is an icon for Britain and Scotland."

As well as the camp, the group puts on formal displays where they demonstrate uniforms, equipment and drills.
AND an obstacle course for youngsters - using safe, plastic barbed wire - allows them to get involved.
There will also be the chance at Summerlee for children to don kilts and red jackets and take part in drill instruction.
Two thirds of the group's 30 members come from Scotland. They mainly stage shows in Scotland and the North of England.
Summerlee has a rich history of hosting educational and fun-packed shows and the museum's bosses are thrilled to be welcoming the Gordon Highlanders 1914-1918.
Summerlee's Laura Eales said: "This promises to be a most fascinating weekend and marks the first local event to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of hostilities in 1914.
"Tom and his group will be interacting with visitors in both formal and informal ways and will provide all ages and interests with a great insight into the life of a fighting man at the front.
"Our Edwardian tram is of the period and many young men from Monklands will have ridden on one before, setting off for France.
"Many other activities will take place around the site too, including crafts and a treasure hunt, with a prize draw for panto tickets.
"So come along for a great family day out."
