DUNFERMLINE will be transported back in time again to the days of the home guard for the Defend Fife WWII festival this September.

One of Fife's newest festivals is back for its second year but this time it will be bigger and better with an extra site to enjoy at Lathalmond.

Organisers Forth Pilgrim launched the event last weekend with WWII re-enactors and also unveiled a new feature at Pittencrieff Park called the Anti-tank cube project.

Local historian Roger Pickering told the Press: "I found the cubes by accident near the Coal Road.

"When I found out they were actually military equipment I saved them from the hands of developers and managed to find them a new home at Pittencrieff Park for future generations to enjoy.

"We also have a plaque telling their story about how they were used to stop a potential Nazi invasion into Dunfermline.

"We're looking forward to this year's festival in September and we're planning for 5,000 visitors over the weekend."

Last year, exhibitions, street theatre and music events retold the fascinating story of the allied Polish armies and Dunfermline’s Home Guard during the Second World War.

In September, the High Street will be filled again but will the event will extend to include Lathalmond – a former Royal Navy depot built in WWII to serve Rosyth. Now home to the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum and Lathalmond Railway Museum, it will be the stage for a big wartime weekend! Free shuttle vintage buses will be taking visitors up to the site.

Dunfermline will still be at the centre though with large displays, vehicles, trains, buses, battles, encampments, entertainment, food, drink and music.

Defend Fife will take place from September 29-30.
