The Beyond the War Memorial Project is now well underway with study sessions running throughout the summer. Two sessions have already taken place (17th June & 8th July, a report on these will follow shortly) with more planned in August and September. We will also be holding events to showcase the project and exhibit its’ findings.
In addition, the project has now recruited Dr Oliver Wilkinson to act as Research Assistant and Volunteer Co-ordinator. Oliver’s research interests are in British experiences during the First World War, with a particular focus on British captivity experiences, and in conjunction with his topic specialisms he has been involved in digitizing the Harris Registers used as the core source base of the project.
Anyone interested in further details about the project is welcome to contact Oliver (OWilkinson1@uclan.ac.uk).
