We will be working with Age Exchange’s Children of the Great War project to record your stories from Women of the Great War and photographing the memorabilia, letters, photographs or other artefacts which survive from their time in service. As millions of people around the world come together celebrating the achievements of women and their roles in fighting for justice, we are collecting the legacies of our predecessors as we contemplate the achievements of ordinary women, coinciding with the 100th year since the outbreak of War.
