A rare fungus, which may have been carried from Flanders Fields to Scotland by World War 1 soldiers, has been discovered in the grounds of a former Edinburgh war hospital.

Clavulinopsis cinereoides are the first to be found in Scotland and were spotted by Ecological Consultant Abbie Patterson at the old Craiglockhart military hospital.

Meh. It's not like eating the fungus made them into anti-war poets or anything.
