On 22nd May 1915, 227 people lost their lives and 246 were injured as a result of the worst disaster in the history of British Railways. Gretna Green with its romantic connections was the last place in the world one would have thought to associate with such a terrible tragedy. Local people become heroes as they fought through the burning and tangled wreckage to rescue the injured and comfort the dying.
