Between 1914-1918 millions of men and women from Britain and its wider Empire countries would become part of the UK military forces.
These men and women came from many backgrounds, which included thousand of British Jewish participants whose identity would be forged forever amongst their fellow countrymen and women as a result of their service.
Join us to find out more about these different men and women, how their lives contributed to the British war effort and how families and communities were affected with the impact of loss. Meet our experts to learn about the development of the conflict on the communities of the North West and how diversity amongst the British Forces was one of its strong characteristics that developed a deep sense of comradeship.
This afternoon, we welcome Philip Greene (no, not that one!). Philip’s talk is entitled ‘My Dramatic Life!’ What can he mean? Only one way to find out. Come and be enthralled. A great way to round off the current programme.
