Colyton Parish History Society – WWI Speaker Event

Wednesday 21 February at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Bruce Upton from Bridport Museum will give an entertaining talk  on

KEEPING THE HOME FIRES BURNING

Life on the Home Front during the Great War

We leave idyllic pre war days and move into the heady jingoism of “it’ll be all over before Christmas”. Gradually the grim realities of a war of attrition become all too apparent, all seen from the perspective of the families left at home. We touch on censorship, rationing, helping the war effort, and making mountains of knitting!
Wednesday 21st February, 7.30pm at Colyford Memorial Hall.
All welcome, £2 to include refreshments.
