'Voices from the Trenches' by Tricia Thompson
Friday 14 November
There was not a family, village or town in Britain that did not suffer losses during the Great War, and ‘Voices from the Trenches’ was written to commemorate the outbreak of World War One. This illustrated talk contains dialogue from actual letters sent home from the Front; reminiscences collected by the Imperial War Museum. Photographs and original recordings of the time bring to life this special event in our history.
