Remembering the Real WW1 – Summer 1916


The scale of Britain’s involvement in World War 1 changed in 1916. Any initial enthusiasm for the war was wearing off. Early recruits had been trained and sent to the front. There was no sign of  imminent victory. Volunteer numbers were drying up. Those who had opposed the war in 1914 were joined by opponents of conscription when it was introduced in January 1916. The Somme. These events mark the centenary of this new stage in the war.

These events are organised with Remembering The Real WW1. For more information email
