The memorial and tribute to Wilfred Owen and the War Poets, recently unveiled at Craiglockhart NT2270 : The War Poets Collection, can be seen in the foreground. Now part of Edinburgh Napier University, this building has been The City Hospital; the Royal Edinburgh Asylum; the City Poorhouse; an Old People's Home; a Hydropathic Institution; and during the First World War, the hospital was used to house officers suffering from the symptoms of shell-shock [now known as PTSD], which is where the 'war poets' Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon met. After the war it was a convent and then a school, and finally part of the then Napier College.
