Recommended Posts

I have been invited to the following event and thought others may be interested.

Do you have a relative who fought in The Great War, served in the Ambulance Corps, in Munitions, or experienced the War on the Home Front? As part of the commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the First World War we are inviting you to come along to Lewisham Library on Saturday 14th December to share your unique family story, passed down through generations. Please also bring with you, any relevant photos, objects, and memorabilia for us to copy and photograph. You can book a 30min slot to tell us your family story, or just turn up to find out about the First World War and Lewisham.

Age Exchange and Lewisham Heritage will use your story to support the creation of exhibitions on The First World War. Age Exchange may use some stories to create a new play, to premiere in London August 2014. All stories will be entered into the Europeana 1914-1918 international on line archive. All local stories will also be entered into the Lewisham Archives.

Children of The Great War is supported by the expertise of The University of Oxford.To find more about the Children of the Great War project:
